The last day of our tour was spent in Drogheda (pronounced Draw-he-da). It’s not far from Dublin, and it was an ancient walled city, as we shall see. The city has gone through many changes over the years, and here is what it used to look like.
Being a river city, with a river that goes out to the sea, Drogheda is a fishing city hence….
These things are massive up close… Notice the size of the people standing next to the gate… The city needed protection from the Vikings, the English, and any other potential invaders of old. Today, these things are just tourist attractions.
