Plans to commemorate Cromwellian Soldiers Killed in Drogheda in 1649 are an affront to the town and a disgrace to the history of the town.

Two sites have been earmarked for a permanent memorial - beside the WW1 cross on Mary's Street and on William Street, close to where a number of soldiers were killed by dissident Royalists refusing to surrender at St. Peter's Church. A collapsing steeple weakened by fire killed the soldiers.

Fine Gael and Louth County Council should not be allowed to get away with this. The commemoration is pencilled in for 11 September 2020 and is being spun as a multi-faith, all inclusive commemoration which will "allow Drogheda to come to terms with her past and move on." According to the text, many English companies ignore the town due to a perceived anti-Englishness.

3,000 signatures needed for it to be voted on at Louth County Council level.
