The hard work and dedication of residents throughout the county has been celebrated at the annual Wexford County Council Local Authority Housing Estate Awards.

Now in their third year the awards recognise and reward individuals and groups for the manner in which they present their homes and their estates throughout the year. And, following a lengthy judging process, this year's winners, across all four Municipal Districts, were announced to a packed audience at the Talbot Hotel

In addition to being named the best Local Authority Estate in the Gorey/Kilmuckridge District, St Joseph's Estate in Ballymurn took the countywide prize, seeing off competition from the other District winners in the process.

In Wexford Town, Oaktree Heights in Castlebrige was named Best Estate, with Corish Park in the runners-up spot. Garren Beithe took the prize for the Best Estate Feature.

Finishing second to St Joseph's in Gorey/Kilmuckridge was Ounavarra in Ballycanew, with Orchard Way in Camolin winning the Best Estate Feature prize.

Cloney Park in Davidstown was named Best Estate in Enniscorthy with Fr Murphy/Rectory Fields in second. Pairc Mhuire in Ferns won the Best Estate Feature award.

In New Ross the Best Estate award went to Woodview Drive in Adamstown with Canon Murphy Park in Clonroche second. McMurrough Court won Best Estate Feature.

Rathlannon Drive in Piercestown was voted Rosslare's Best Estate ahead of Lakelands in Bridgetown. The Best Estate Feature went to Cois Mara in Rosslare Strand.
