Churches in Europe fascinate me, I wonder how such amazing structures could be built without " modern technology"
ThIs is one of those places. The organist was practising/entertaining while I was there. Great sound and fantastic acoustics.

The head of St Oliver Plunkett (circa 1650 or so) is here under glass. Really, it is - his head, that is. Big shrine for him up front on the left side of the church. A relic of the ONE TRUE CROSS is directly opposite from St Oliver. Plus you can light candles for 20p and save a soul. Plus the church is magnificent! Park anywhere you can find a "pay and park" spot in the city and walk - can't be more than 5 blocks. The city is great walking and the church is great visiting. Laurence's Gate (circa 1220AD or close to that) is just a few blocks away. Fun town to spend a bit of time in.

Best known as the location of the head of Oliver Plunkett this is worth a visit to see this saints relics. Obviously this is a church so respect is needed at mass times etc.

Worth a trip if you're in Drogheda. The Relic of St. Oliver's Head is interesting if a little macabre. The architecture is beautiful and the stained glass windows are amazing.
