UNDERDROGS: The Official Soundtrack

Conjuring up all the energy, passion and determination of the legendary Drogheda United F.C, CMcG Visions proudly presents UNDERDROGS – A League of Ireland Story. This new documentary reveals rare behind the scenes footage of Drogheda United’s second and third seasons back in the League of Ireland Premier Division. Filmmaker, Conor McGuinness gained exclusive access to showcase the inside story of the players, coaches, volunteers and supporters of a part-time community club in a largely full-time league. Shot, edited and directed by McGuinness and co-directed by singer-songwriter, Seán Matthews, the documentary gives a fresh insight into all the highs and lows, the power and the glory, and the unique community spirit of Drogheda United F.C.


The original soundtrack and sound design for UNDERDROGS was composed by Breifne Holohan. It evokes the energy, passion and determination of the legendary Drogs. The score provides an empathetic commentary to the film taking the viewer on a whirlwind journey of emotions as a football club strives for success, often in the face of great challenges and adversity. The album features the complete soundtrack from the documentary including newly written pieces interwoven with field recordings capturing the renowned chants heard regularly around United Park. It also contains solo instrumental compositions and music from Holohan’s ongoing electronic/ambient project, six-string drum. Acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, electronics and percussion fill this collection of tunes in a short but exciting adventure through the story of Drogheda United F.C.
