Castletown Wexford

This Village is found between Tara Hill and Clones Strand. Naturally this has become a popular area for tourists. There is evidence of Christian and Pre-Christian settlements around Kilgorman. Saint Gorman is thought to have come here from Wales, probably via Saint Kevin's Monastery at Glendalough.

The village's greatest claim to fame is the patriot Liam Mellows. A native of County Galway, he spent much of his youth in Macoyle, Inch. He survived the 1916 rising and the War of Independence, but was executed by the Free State Government for his part of the Civil War of 1922. At his own request, he is buried in Saint Patrick's Cemetery, Castletown.
