This exhibition of work from the Drogheda Municipal Art Collection features key works considering the theme of Drogheda from the Collection. The exhibition is programmed to mark the 600 anniversary of the unification of Drogheda.

Up until 1412 two seperate towns were located on the north and south banks of the Boyne. A submission was taken to King Henry IV by Robert Ball who brought back a new Charter unifying the two towns to become one unified Drogheda in November of 1412.
