WEXFORD honoured all those from town and county who have perished in war at a special Remembrance Day Service and wreath-laying on Sunday.

The sermon during an eucumenical service at St. Iberius Church was delivered by Patrick Bradish, whose two great uncles served during the Great War.

One of them, from Strandfield Manor, served as a medic during the war and was highly decorated. Mayor Cllr Ger Carthy, Chief Superintendent John Roche and Tom O'Keefe, from ONE, delivered readings. From St. Iberius Church, the procession followed the colour party to Redmond Square where Cllr Carthy and Tom O'Keefe laid wreaths. The ceremonies were attended by the uniformed bodies, ONE, the UN Veterans, the Gardai, Wexford County Council, Wexford Marinewatch and the Coast Guard.
