#2 Gibbet Hill

Gibbet Hill is just across from where I live. I can tell the wind speed without even poking my nose outside!

#3 St Patrick’s Church

St Patrick's Church, Wexford. This is a medieval church which has lain in ruins since before the Great Famine in 1840. Nature finds a way, and now plants grow from its crevices. I think those patches of purple are Digitalis (foxglove).

#6 St Edan’s Cathedral

St Edan's Cathedral, Ferns, founded 598 AD. Ferns was once an important, thriving centre in Ireland's southeast. Now, although it still straddles the main road south from Dublin, you drive through it in the blink of an eye. This cathedral wall suggests some of the town's former grandeur.

#7 The Gaelic Bar

After all that gallivanting, a refreshing pint of Guinness was most welcome, at the Gaelic Bar in Wexford town.
