Wexford residents wanted for new RTE programme based on 1916 commemorations


An open invitation to people from all across the county is asking them to take part in a special programme this autumn.

On October 22, RTE will be hitting the county to produce a half-hour programme about Wexford and next year's 1916 commemorations. As part of the project, RTE and Wexford County Council are calling on Wexford residents to attend a special screening of a film, which features a number of local schoolchildren paying tribute to their ancestors who were involved in the Enniscorthy Rising.

RTE will film the public as they watch the short screening and this will form an integral part of the Wexford 1916 programme. Presented by Ferns native and former RTE presenter Anne Doyle, it is set to hit our screens in November.

Those who wish to be part of this unique and historic event can meet in SuperValu car park in Abbey Square Enniscorthy at 6.30 p.m. Organisers are asking people to bring torches to add to the atmosphere.
