LIBRARIAN and local historian Jarlath Glynn launched his new book, 'Wexford Then and Now', at Greenacres.

Mayor George Lawlor did the honours, complimenting Jarlath and photographer Padraig Grant on the new publication, which contrasts the town as it was with that it has become.

In the book, old photographs, some of which haven't seen the light of day for many years, are set alongside Padraig's new colour images, with the same streetscapes and scenes showing how much or in some cases how little has changed in the past 100 years.

The book is available locally for €16.99.
