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.
