Calling on people of Ballyfad and Kilanerin – join communities across North Wexford on the Sean Etchingham Route as part of the ‘Backroads to the Rising Project’.  You are invited to join walkers on the Sean Etchingham Route from Ferns to Enniscorthy as part of the Backroads to the Rising project, which will converge on Enniscorthy, Easter Monday, 28th of March, 2016.

Alternatively you can join walkers at two points closer to town; at Scarawalsh or at the Baked Potato Restaurant on the Old Dublin Road. Cyclists will start the route on bike in Gorey.  Aileen Lambert and Michael Fortune have devised the project which is part of Wexford County Council’s 2016 Commemoration Programme.

Each route has been devised to suit cyclists and walkers of all ages and abilities. Individuals, community groups, walking clubs, sporting associations etc are all invited to participate. The project is inspired by journeys which the men and women of Wexford undertook in 1916 and involves five walking and cycling routes that will converge in Enniscorthy as part of the 2016 Easter Rising Commemorations.

You can download a copy of the brochure from the project website and hard copies are available from Wexford Libraries. For further information see and “like‘ the facebook page to stay informed. For further information contact Aileen on 087 7552593 or Mick on 087 6470247
