im new to Mumstown so forgive me if i do anything wrong!
i am from Dublin originally, moved down in 2006, had met my BF in 2004 and he is from Drogheda anyway, my parents moved down so i came with them and have now bought a house in Drogheda with my BF and we have a 17month old son now… i work in Drogheda full time, mon-fri 9-5. i have found it extremly hard too meet new ppl in drogheda, i am kind of shy but not overly i would start a conversation and that. just never seem to be in the right places to meet new ppl.
at the moment i’m down to 2 friends (one my aunt but same age…)
after moving from dublin it was very hard to keep seeing my friends from dublin as everyones life was taking different paths and my BF’s friends in Drogheda were, to say the least, HORRIBLE to me!!
it used to upset me but now i know i wouldnt even want them as friends, really not nice, ugly (inside) ppl!
anyway sometimes it can get very lonely when BF is working, works 12hr shifts & sometimes weekends & nights! seem to be noticing it more now as one of my friends just had a baby & still lives in dublin so dont get alot of time to do things anymore..
was wondering if there is anyone else in this situation or if anyone can suggest any places to meet new ppl.. BF is great and we have great fun together but its not the same as having a few girls around!
Thanks in advance for ur replies!

Welcome to Mumstown, you definately have come to the best web site around 😆
You mention that you work full time, so that kind of rules out Mother and Todler type groups which are generally run in the mornins durin hte week, so I guess you are looking for ideas for the weekend and evenings!
Excuse the list type of thing but just thinking as I am typing… also all info on the following can be found on Mumstown, or online elsewhere I am sure!!
Drogheda – Aura Leisure. Pay as you go , lots of different classes to do evenings and weekends lovely pool and ym
Fun Parks such as Astro Tots, and Funtasia Drogheda at the weekends , very easy to get chatting to other mums at these places.
Scotch Hall days – Mothers Day special day coming up , loads of free events sponsered by Mumstown- bound to be loads of mums to meet
Drogheda Playground- / feed the ducks – again full of mums sitting bored watching kids dying for a chat.
Getting to know people through this web site, join us on Inane Chat 😀March 9, 2009 at 10:15 am #70808AnonymousInactive

sorry i cant be of much help where to find friends im orgianlly from drogheda and my friends are all from school. ive moved house and i know NO ONE, everyone keeps to themselves, which thinking about it is a good thing as last thing i want is noisey neighbours 🙂

hey shel, sorry to hear about you BFs mates..God that sounds awful..You must feel so alone down here..I never moved far from my family (im drogheda born and bred!) so I can only imagine how isolated you must be. In a way I can relate to what you mean though. I have a great bf and we both have kids, but Ive only a handful of close girlfriends. One of which ive known since we were 3.. she would be the only one I speak to regularly. But as she has four children we seldom get to go out together! I would still like to make more friends too. I joined westgate gym and made some new friends there..I have to back and renew my membership, I wouldnt mind if you wanted to come along and meet some people too…I look forward to hearing from you..[/b]
