Touring South Wexford

Yesterday I took advantage of one of the few rainless days this summer and decided to tour around the South Wexford coast. It is three years ago since I first set out to complete a circuit of the coastal roads of Ireland. I had started to write about my explorations as soon as I got home, beginning with South Dublin and continuing on to Wicklow, Wexford, Waterford, and Cork. The intention was to write a book (tentatively called "The 100 Corners of Ireland") about the entire trip, but it has ended up in three parts: "Exploring Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way" (published in 2014), "Exploring Northern Ireland's Causeway and Mourne Coastal Routes" (published in 2015), the third part will be "Exploring Ireland's East and South-East Coast" (hopefully to be published next year). When I originally started I did not have the intention to include photographs (even though I took hundreds).

I did not have that many photos of the Co Wexford coast, so my trip yesterday was to put that right - below are a sample of some of the photos I took:

Kylmore Memorial Garden.

Outside Sinnott's Pub in Duncormick.

Bannow Church (where the Normans first landed in 1169).
