Last piece of the jigsaw of this phase (more to come)of the Rocks. The true peoples park of wexford town. With St Mary's the guardians.
Spent a few hours with the King of the Rocks, Barry Kinsella, erecting the trail signage. Three trails designed for different levels of mobility, fitness and tourism. Orange trail is the easiest- gentle gradients, includes the viewing point at base of Hilly Holly. Blue trail - longer and a bit steeper, includes the historical aspects of the Faythe. Red trail - a tough Hills circuit to test your fitness.
The whole project of rejuvenating the Rocks into a top class sports club pitch and park has been 15 years in the making, with the Mary's and the Southend Family Resource centre as the project leaders. Essential input over the years from Barry Kinsella, Colm O Muiri, Yvonne Byrne, the late Paddy 'Wacker' Nolan, Dr Yvonne Byrne, Carolyne Godkin of WXCC, Brendan Howlin and the ever resourceful George (the bench man) Lawlor. Thanks to all mentioned and no offence if you were missed! ... See MoreSee Less
