Wexford County Description

From early Celtic and Nordic beginnings Wexford has become a thriving cosmopolitan hub, excellent for shopping and dining out, yet steeped in heritage and history, you can re-live nine thousand years of history at the Irish National Heritage Park or come to Wexford in October to experience the World-famous Wexford Festival Opera. Our origins can also be traced to the Celtic Tribes who moved Westward across Europe and were attracted to the natural harbour of Loch Garman on the South East corner of Ireland where in the early 900?s Wexford was one of the first Irish towns. Although once maurading warriors the Vikings did settle well in Wexford becoming citizens, traders and their early legacy include the narrow winding streets ? still very much in evidence in Wexford Town. The name Wexford is derived from the Viking Weissford the ?Land of Mud Flats?. Evidence of our Celtic and Viking past is frequently being discovered in archaeological digs in Wexford. In the Spring of 1169 the town of Wexford was taken over by an invading force of Norman Knights who, over the following centuries enclosed the town and regulated trade (the remains of the old Norman walls can still be seen in Wexford). Amongst the many visitors to Wexford at this time was King Henry 11 who visited Selskar Abbey to atone for his part in the murder of St Thomas a Beckett. Through many turbulent years Wexford survived warring factions, plague and the religious upheaval of the Reformation. The 1600?s also brought suffering, Wexford became a naval base for the Confederate Government in its war with the Parliament Forces and this led to a massacre in 1649, when Wexford fell to an army led by Oliver Cromwell. For almost a hundred years relative calm was restored to Wexford but in the hot summer of 1798 it exploded once more when many woes of past decades surfaced with violent results on both sides, which are still evoked in story and song. From those dark days of 1798 Wexford entered an age of expansion the port was thriving and reaching its zenith with hundreds of ships trading into lands in Africa, the Black Sea and the United States of America. Trade increases led to the growth of industry such as whiskey distilling and the manufacture of agricultural machinery. The population grew steadily and many new streets were constructed. In 1851 construction began on the elegant ?Twin Churches? whose stately spires still elegantly outline the Wexford skyline. Many other important buildings were also constructed at this time St Peter?s College in 1819, The Mechanics Institute in 1849 and the Tate School in 1867 (now the home of Wexford Borough Council the Municipal Buildings). The Railway reached Wexford in 1870 and was continued along the Quay Front in 1882 ? it has indeed now become a feature of the award winning Quay Front and trains still pass through, as part of the mainline service from Dublin to Rosslare, delighting tourists. With the success of the railways and the booming shipping industry Wexford was at this stage a very lucrative place to live. Emigration also took its toll on our work populance, however the cosmopolitan outlook (springing from our seafaring tradition) made the town very attractive as a tourist destination. To honour the Wexford / United States connection the people of America presented Wexford with the John Barry Memorial Statue, located at Crescent Quay. John Barry, Father of the American Navy was actually born in County Wexford. We have had many eminent visitors to Wexford over the years, John F Kennedy visited the county of his ancestors just threw months before his assassination. Former President Dwight Eisenhower and Mayor Daly of New York were also distinguished visitors. In latter years Wexford has renewed relationships with our European Celtic cousins when it was twinned with Coueron, France and has enjoyed many cultural exchange visits since that time.
