WEXFORD is to officially honour its dead from the First World War for the first time this weekend, with Unionist politician Jeffrey Donaldson among those invited to attend the commemoration at Redmond Square.

Mr Donaldson, a member of the Democratic Unionist Party and British MP for Lagan Valley, has been invited by the borough council following a request by the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Mayor Jim Allen said it wasn't yet clear whether Mr Donaldson will attend Sunday's unveiling of the monument to the 865 Wexford men killed in the Great War between 1914 and 1918.
