In 2011, Droichead Arts Centre invited the town of Drogheda to come together to celebrate its wonderful walled heritage by joining hands with over 2500 people to form a large human wall along the line where the medieval wall once existed. It was a great opportunity to involve the community in celebrating and acknowledging Drogheda’s medieval history. To follow on from this project, we began to develop the idea of a social commentary about the wall, from people who live and work along its structure and this trail has been a result of that process. This trail offers social and historical insights and stories about parts of Drogheda where the wall resides. It was not intended to be a formal history documentary of the wall but instead a light and engaging commentary from different community perspectives.
We would like to special thanks to all the contributing participants to the project. To Sinead Brassil - the Researcher and Interviewer; Conor Wilkinson - the Commentator; LMFM for their technical assistance and support and to the Heritage Council for funding the project.
