Mariner ancestors from Drogheda?

If you have ancestors from the Drogheda area who were seamen, you'll be interested in the Family History from the Sea exhibition at Drogheda Museum Millmount, Co Louth.

The exhibition, which opened last week, includes records and photos of seamen from the Drogheda area from the early 1900s. The areas covered are Drogheda, Clogherhead, Baltray, Termonfeckin and Mornington and I'm told by the museum that several visitors have already discovered links to their own family in the material.

Open Monday to Saturday 10:00am to 5:00pm, the exhibition continues until 30 November. Admission is free.
