Drogheda Down Memory Lane (Calendar)

"Drogheda Down Memory Lane" Calendar                                                


2013: A Big Year For Boomerang!

The countdown is on! Boomerang Cafe, the new one stop youth service and cafe, for all the young people of Drogheda opens Summer 2013. So it seems only fitting that the team at Boomerang Cafe should publish a 2013 calendar as part of their fundraising efforts.

The calendar was the brainchild of Peter Kierans, of Anglo Printers, who is a volunteer member of the fundraising committee. The calendar is called "Drogheda Down Memory Lane" and celebrates images of Drogheda in days gone by.  The idea for the calendar came from the very popular Facebook page of the same name.

Catrina Culligan of Boomerang Cafe explained "Peter knew how many local people watch and contribute to the Facebook page. He worked closely with Pat Flanagan and a host of local photographers including Jimmy Weldon, Andy Spearman and Des Clinton to bring it together in a very short space of time. We deeply appreciate all their hard work and effort. The result is a calendar of beautiful historic images of our wonderful town."

The calendar will make an ideal Christmas present for friends and family, both here and abroad. Priced at €10 per calendar the proceeds of the sale will go towards the opening of the new youth cafe in Summer 2013. Calendars go on sale this weekend and can be purchased in local retailers (watch out for the posters promoting the calendar in their windows), from Drogheda Youth Development in Narrow West Street or online.

Catrina concluded; "We hope that people will love the Boomerang Cafe calendar as much as we do. By purchasing Boomerang Cafe calendars for friends and family abroad, you can help to bring historic Drogheda a little closer, while supporting a great cause."
