Newspapers in Drogheda
« on: Wednesday 07 December 16 20:58 GMT (UK) »
A family story has come to light in recent times concerning my grandmother and this story appears in the newspapers of Drogheda in either May or June of 1944.

Does anyone live locally to the Drogheda library which is where papers from this time would be archived? 

It's a request to see if anyone wouldn't mind having a quick look if I provide the full details to the story.

Many thanks
