One of the town's oldest building has received €25,000 from Wexford County Council.

The Friary will receive the money to help fund vital repairs to the roof in a bid to help safeguard the iconic building.

Cllr Davy Hynes said it 'would be a terrible pity to let anything happen to the building'.

Director of Services Tony Larkin said the exact nature of the works needed is being examined but it is understood that the repairs needed will be cost significantly more than €25,000. He said that once the nature of the repairs was established the council would revisit the matter with a view to looking at extra funding.
