St. Peter's Church is beautiful in the midst of Drogheda near a few other historical areas and some cobblestone roads. An extra bonus was seeing St. Oliver Plunkett's head and reading the information about how he became a saint.

I was moved by the beauty of the church and the solemnous of mass. It is a centerpiece location in Drogheda in the heart of city centre. Also, for those interested in relics St. Peters contains the remains of St. Oliver Plunkett's head.
