Art at the Port

Drogheda Port Company has had a long history supporting the Arts and has kept this alive through a myriad of wonderful art commissions and project collaborations. It is both proud and honoured to have worked with such talented artists who have created unique and stunning pieces through a variety of art mediums.



The Mall Buoy

‘The 'Mall Buoy' is a decommissioned maritime marker buoy which saw service on the Irish coast for many decades in the last century and is traditionally painted starboard green. This buoy now offers itself as a very unique and public canvas and has been brightening up the Mall area of the port since it was first placed there. Over the years Drogheda Port Company has creatively collaborated with several artists, community groups and charities to transform the Buoy into a stunning visual piece capturing hearts and smiles of passers-by.
