Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford

The name of this town means ' island of the Corthaige' a people who lived there in the 4th and 5th century. It was first settled by a follower of St Patrick, St Seanan during the 5th century. At the top of Castle Hill stands the turreted fortress founded by the Normans in 1205. In the 16th century it was given to the poet Edmund Spenser in reward for the poem 'The Faerie Queen'. The castle is now a Historical and Folk museum.

On the east bank of the River Slaney is Vinegar Hill, the scene of the 1798 rebellion, where the rebels used a ruined windmill as a makeshift fort and held out for nearly a month. The top of the hill gives a spectacular view of the countryside, from the winding River Slaney to the blue-topped Blackstairs Mountains.
