North Quay, Drogheda

The lure of the sea called to me again when I saw these gorgeous ships. But for those of you tired of maritime magnificence, there are some great businesses to be seen here too and the railway viaduct in the distance.


At no. 3, we have Kennedy the Grocer and the Railway Hotel; no. 4 is Anne Butterly, also a Grocer; no. 5 is a Coal Store; no. 6 is Edward Fitzgerald's, complete with a man working on the roof...


Can only make out one name on the ships - think the nearest one is called Kyne? (But would be grateful if you'd all squint at it to see what you think it is)
