  • One of my favorite things to visit is old churches, and this one was certainly impressive! The stained glass and high ceilings are true works of art! This is a must see if you are in the area 
  • Well worth a visit brilliant architecture fine representation of time gone by and of course Oliver Plunkett,s head a must see if in the area 
  • Christmas Eve in St Peter's with the Drogheda Male Voice Choir. A welcome celebration of a special time of year with family and friends.

  • 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.
