    Good things about Wexford:
    1. Further south (slightly warmer weather)
    2. Lots of exit routes - roads, trains, boats etc.

    I'm not from Wexford, or even the south east but I've been there a lot over the past 3 years and I think it's one of the nicest counties in Ireland.
    The weather is often better than the rest of the country, there's loads of nice scenery, nice beaches, loads of history, decent pubs and restaurants and nice people. It would be a nice county to retire to, somewhere coastal maybe.
    Well, that's the nice side of the county that I'm used to!! :)

    Don't forget the cheaper cost of living due to the relatively infrequent trips to Croke Park…

    What's Wexford like in comparison to New Ross?

    Is Wexford an ok place, and fairly safe?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,478 tribble


    Wexford is nice, 'cept for the natives...:)

    seriosly though you do seem to have a disproportionate number of loonies - nice countryside though...

    tribble


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,135 ✭✭✭ bkehoe


    Wexford town is too far away from Waterford ;).


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 81 ✭✭✭ MazyMo


    Is that nice friendly loonies, or bad nasty-type loonies??

    Well I wouldnt class either as one of the best... :D

    Im surprised that Dunbrody hasnt been stripped in the middle of the night and sold off.. how did they manage to get it to stay intact for so long?

    Is it surrounded by armed guards at night and maybe a gun turret at the top or something :p:p:p

    No, its just that the people of New Ross respect the importance of the Dunbrody ship!!

    Sure aren't the people of New Ross known for their cultural and historical awareness - thought that was a well know fact :rolleyes:

    lets see now from an anchor (sailing in harbour or Rosslare up to Arklow) to a zooological garden- JFK park near New ross.
    Throw in Strawberry fairs, carnsore point, opera festivals, golf, hurling, etc. etc. shut up beginning to sound like a bro-sure.:D :D
    I met a family moved from Dublin recently and they were really pleased. apparently they discovered over 65 different clubs/socieites up and running in Wex town alone.
    For simple alcoholism theres always the'vomit comet' to Wales. See can u get pissed faster than it gets to Wales- thats 99 minutes folks- without puking!
    a game for all the youngsters to play
    the wrinklies love it because they have the stamina to do it all again onthe way home!:cool:
