Hi everyone.

Wexford Town is and always has been my favourite place in Ireland, so here is a selection of photos taken during my summer trip there.

Wexford’s large harbour attracted many races throughout history. The Gaelic name for Wexford is Loch Garman, and local legend tells of how Garman Garbh was drowned on the nearby mudflats by flood waters released by an enchantress. The resultant lake was named Lake of Garman (Loch Garman). Much of Wexford harbour is still very shallow, and a large portion of it has been reclaimed to build the front section of the town and the lovely quays. Despite not being the bustling port it once was, Wexford harbour is still a popular fishing port.

Wexford’s skyline is dominated by the spires of its two catholic churches: Rowe Street and Bride Street churches. One of the town’s many attractions is Selskar Abbey, founded by Sir Alexander Roche after a crusade to the Holy Land to recover the Holy Sepulchre. He was forced to go there by his parents in the hope it would prevent him from marrying the local girl he loved, because she was a poor man’s daughter. While away the girl was told he had died in battle. Upon his return from Palestine he learned that she had entered a convent. Alexander entered the monastery, took a vow of celibacy and became its first Prior, dedicating the monastery to the Holy Sepulchre and decorating it with its relics.

In the old days Wexford’s harbour was a bustling port and thus the town has a thriving history as well as an alarming number of pubs, even for an Irish town. I was originally told there are ninety, but later told it was more like sixty. There is no shortage of nightlife, and the main street is awash with bars, restaurants and cafes. I lived on and off in Wexford over many years, and sampled this nightlife in great depth. Wexford has a fantastically diverse music scene. Traditional Irish music can be found in many pubs around town, most notably in the Sky and the Ground on South Main Street on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night. Some nights the amount of musicians in one setting can fill an entire corner of the pub. On other occasions outsiders might surprise you with a favourite song of theirs. Or you might be coerced into singing a song yourself.

If you are looking something different to do for Christmas, then this is a great place to spend the festive week. For more info check out my book: Mysterious World: Ireland.
