About Dublin

Dublin is the capital and largest city in Ireland near the midpoint of Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey. Founded as a centre of Viking settlement, the city has been Ireland's capital since mediaeval times.

The name Dublin is a derivative of 'Dubh Linn' (Irish, meaning 'black pool'). The common name for the city in Modern Irish is 'Baile Átha Cliath' ('The Settlement of the Ford of the Reed Hurdles'), which refers to the settlement, founded in 988 by High King Mael Sechnaill II, that adjoined the town of Dubh Linn proper at the Black Pool.

About Wexford

All counties in Ireland have their own story and in a land steeped in myth and legend, Wexford is no exception. The origin of County Wexford is lost in the mists of time but legend tells us that when Garman Garbh was drowned on the mudflats in waters released by an enchantress, the vast expanse of harbour thus created was named The Lake of Garman or Loch Garman, the Gaelic name for Wexford.

The origins of Wexford can also be traced to the Celtic Tribes who moved Westward across Europe and were attracted to the natural harbour of Loch Garman on the South East corner of Ireland. Although once maurading warriors the Vikings did settle well in Wexford. The name Wexford is derived from the Viking Weissford the “Land of Mud Flats”. Evidence of it's Celtic and Viking past is frequently being discovered in archaeological digs in Wexford.

From early Celtic and Nordic beginnings Wexford has become a thriving cosmopolitan hub.
