On Saturday 24th March 2012, Loughries True Blues LOL 1948 will depart on our first event / trip of 2012.
We have planned a visit to the Boyne Battlefield Site, Oldbridge, Drogheda Co. Louth. This will be our second visit to the site since 2005, however on our last visit the visitors centre was not opened, in fact it was only being discussed by our politicians at the time. The weather was particularly bad that day, with strong winds and driving rain putting a damper on the visit.
We vowed to return once the visitors centre was opened - so we have booked our usual transport man Desi Mitchell at 'Comfi-Coaches and we have planned to meet at the bus station Newtownards, at 8.30pm - departing soon thereafter.
Here is a link to the visitors centre - http://www.battleoftheboyne.ie/
