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.

Music At The Gate

Thanks to everyone who made this day such a great success. To the musicians, the dancers, the singers, the volunteers, the companies that gave discounts on things like the stage, barriers, cable protection ramps and the floor for the stage, the order of Malta, the sponsers of this event The Drogheda Motor Show, the Morning Star and the punt and for Barney Mac's for hosting a fantastic all evening session from 5:30 to closing time. This event only happens because the community get behind it I've always said it. If it wasmn't for the incredible support I've been given with this event, it would just be a lonely piper sitting playing to the traffic in front of Laurence's gate.

More videos highlighting specific performers that weren't shown during live posts will be published over the next week.

Music At The Gate

Alex and his family have been at almost every #MusicAtTheGate. But it was only on Saturday that I got to talk to him properly. He's very proud of his school and he really loves singing. What a pleasure to have him back on the stage. I look forward to the next event where we will be very happy to invite Alex and his friends up to perform again. ... See MoreSee Less
