Living in Wexford has given me a deep interest and appreciation for Medieval Ireland, those dark days of conquest, when first the Vikings and then the Normans arrived, the witchcraft trials of Kilkenny, the Black Death and fantastic figures with names like Strongbow, Raymond le Gros (the fat!), Diarmaid MacMurchadha na Ngall (Dermot of the foreigners) -Lorraine, Founder of Gallivanting Tours
