  • A place of quiet and contemplation right in the centre of town. Easy to find but there are difficulties for parking as in all towns. Worth the effort however if only to see at Oliver's relics. I got m...  more »
  • The church is right in the centre of town and it is simply magnificent. It is well worth a visit if you like church architecture. 
  • A beautiful old building with a beautiful wooden ceiling. Just the wooden ceiling is a teachable moment when one enters the Church.

  • Drogheda has lots of churches and to make life complicated for visitors there are two churches in the town named ’St. Peter’s’. Of the two St. Peter’s Church of Ireland is the one that you need to visit if you are interested in old graveyards. Built on the site of an earlier church, St Peters is an excellent example of a Georgian church and there are not too many of those in Ireland. It may sound as a advertisement for beer at least one tourist guidebook described it as “probably the finest provincial Georgian church in Ireland”. Unfortunately as I visited late in the day I did not gain entry to the church but I spent about an hour viewing the graveyard which is very different to most that I have photographed to date. The most unusual thing that I came across was a “cadaver stone” taken from the tomb of Sir Edmond Goldyng and his wife Elizabeth Fleming. It is built into the churchyard wall, east of the present building and shows two cadavers enclosed in shrouds which have been partially opened to show the remains of the occupants of the tomb.
