Really beautiful old church with great history, gorgeous stained glass panels, Oliver Plunkett's prison door and shrunken head. A must see!

many years ago when I was a young child my father took me to see the head of St Oliver Plunkett in St Peter's.It was fascinating then and it is still now also there is a relic of the true cross from the cruIt's a lovely quiet place in the main street of a very busy town to gather your thoughts

Very bizarre but definitely worth a look if you are in Drogheda town, also the church itself is beautiful and has other not so impressive relics on show

I'm not Catholic but felt a sincere reverence for St. Peter's Church. The enshrined relics of St. Oliver Plunkett's skull complete with browned teeth and a few of his bones as well as the well organized pictograph of his life story and martyrdom on display in the front left area of the church made for a well received presentation worth visiting. Light a candle (20 cent USD donation suggested), in memory of a departed loved one or say a prayer for yourself.

The church is totally worth a visit. Inside the church you get to learn the story of St. Oliver Plunkett. They also have his preserved head up for view.
