Our Lady of Lourdes Church
About 15,500 people gave a minimum of £1 each to the construction of
this wonderful Church, dedicated to Mary, the Mother of Jesus and our
Mother also. That in itself must have given to the people of this area, of
this town, of this parish, a great sense of ownership – a great feeling
of pride and satisfaction. Yes, it was the House of God – the House of
Prayer – but it was also the House of the Faith of the People of Drogheda.
St. Peter's Church of Ireland
St. Peter’s Church of Ireland is built on a site which has been a centre
of worship at least since the founding of the town of Drogheda itself.
Although there may have been a Celtic Church here in earlier times, the
dedication to St. Peter suggests that it was an Anglo-Norman foundation
as Celtic Churches were not usually dedicated to Biblical Saints. The first
church on the site was probably built about the same time as Mellifont
Abbey, as the remains of some of the original tiles and mouldings found
on the site are similar to those found at Mellifont.
