Drogheda Etymology - Where Does the Name Drogheda Come From?

Drogheda’s population went down from 41,000 in 2016 to 33,441 in 2021 and became the eleventh largest settlement in Ireland. Drogheda Ireland has the most influential figures in the history of Ireland, the two founders, Anglo-Normans Hugh De Lacy and Bertram De Verdon. Drogheda is also well known all over the world for the tragedic historical catastrophe, The Irish Potato Famine (1845-1849).
