Gorey, Co. Wexford

Gorey is a busy market town with a good selection of shops, restaurants, and pubs. There is also a Pugin Church, a famous 19th century architect.

Gorey's streets are wide and well spaced out, oweing to the fact that they were planned by the Ram family in the 17th century. The town was granted it's arms in 1623 which consisted of a cross, lion, rose and swan signifying religion, fortitude, unanimity and industry. These can be seen over the doorway of the Vocational school in The Avenue and on the Market Hall in Main Street.

The magnificent St. Micheal's Cathedral, built during the 19th century stands as a reminder of the towns past prominence, Gorey was at the fore front of the 1798 Rebellion, which is commemorated by a Celtic Cross to the west of the town. The cross is close to 418ft high over Gorey Hill.

To the north is the extinct volcano, Tara Hill, over 833ft in height, it is a relic from the Ice Age and was once owned by the feared Gaelic poet Dubhtach. It's a steep but worthwhile walk to the top as it gives a fantastic view across to Courttown bay.
