Music at the Gate would just be a fella with his guide dog and a set of pipes at Laurence’s gate without the many musicians who participate in this event each month. I would like to extend as much gratitude as humanly possible to these amazing people.

Thanks to the contributors

Music at the Gate is run by Darragh Ó Héiligh with the support of dozens of local musicians and volunteers. Without the participation of such a great group of enthusiastic helpers this event would not have become the success that Drogheda enjoys every month.

To everyone who helped run #MusicAtTheGate, played at the many sessions or just came for the fun of it, happy new year. 2019 will be another great year for traditional Irish music and free family entertainment in Drogheda. We will need your support to make this bigger and better during the Fleadh. We want our purpose built stage to be available for the entire festival so that Laurence's gate becomes a great entertainment space at the top of the town. ... See MoreSee Less

Music At The Gate

The last performances have been organized for 2018. I'm now looking forward to 2019. Drogheda is embracing traditional Irish culture and with initiatives like #MusicAtTheGate and Ceol FM, I intend to keep up the momentum that has been started.

Happy Christmas. Thanks to everyone who contributed to Music at the Gate and the other events that were run in the past year to promote free family entertainment, inclusiveness and traditional Irish music in Drogheda. 2019 will build on the successes of this year and we will continue to enjoy promoting Drogheda, our people, our culture and our welcome before, during and after the Fleadh.

It's been great to be a part of Drogheda in the past year. The town has a really posative buz. Community events such as the unvailing of the Christmas lights, music at the old Abbey, the three panto's that the town has hosted this year, #MusicAtTheGate and of course, the #FleadhCheoil have given the area a deserved boost. I created this short video to try to capture the new energy in our town. Bring on 2019!
