Members of the Irish and Polish communities united under glorious sunshine on Wexford Quay for the Polska Eire Festival's Wexford Town Game.

The event saw teams of four go head to head in a series of challenges which all related to the history of Poland and Ireland. People of all ages scrambled through the streets of Wexford in search of clues, while learning a bit about the history of their neighbours along the way.

A tiring yet enjoyable trek around the town culminated in a barbeque in the Friary Garden, where the victorious winners were presented with their prizes and everyone enjoyed some grub in the sun.

This year marks the second year of the Polska Eire festival, which was established as an annual nationwide celebration of Irish-Polish friendship.
