WELCOME TO IF WALLS COULD TALK
AN AUDIO TOUR OF DROGHEDA

Thank you for joining us on our alternative journey of Drogheda’s Town Walls in ‘If Walls Could Talk’. The Walled Town of Drogheda was as big as many of its major European towns, comparable in size to Oxford, enclosing 45.8 hectares of ground with the walls standing an average height of 6.7 metres. The building of the walls commenced in 1234 yet today you will find that there are only remnants still standing. The trail you are about to encounter will take you on a journey within the circumference, where the walls once stood and past sections of the wall still standing. This is not a formal historical excursion but instead it is a social commentary from the people and about the people whose everyday lives were enclosed within these great walls. The trail offers anecdotes, historical references and memories.
