In Saint Peter’s Church in Drogheda you can visit the relics of Saint Oliver Plunkett (1st November 1625 - 1st July 1681) who was the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland. He maintained his duties in Ireland in the face of English persecution and was eventually arrested and tried for treason in London. He was hanged, drawn and quartered at Tyburn on 1 July 1681, and became the last Roman Catholic martyr to die in England. Oliver Plunkett was beatified in 1920 and canonised in 1975, the first new Irish saint for almost seven hundred years..   Read More about this Historical Sight
