Vinegar Hill

TIME : 2016/2/18 22:13:49

Scene of one of the most important battles of Ireland's 1798 rebellion against British rule, this hill just outside Enniscorthy is topped with a memorial to the uprising, and dotted with explanatory signs about the battlefield. A battle re-enactment takes place each year on the first weekend in August. Access is from a car park on the east side of the hill, reached via Drumgoold Rd; it's about 2km east of Enniscorthy Castle, a 30-minute walk.
