€30 / per person*

From the comfort of your minibus, you will be transported back to that fateful summer of 1798 when so many died in the name of Irish freedom. You will travel with Fr John Murphy during those fateful 3 weeks when he made decisions on events not learned during his time as a seminary.

Our first stop will be Ferns, then on through the back roads of Co Wexford where we will visit The Harrow and Boolavogue. Here we will tour The Fr Murphy Centre where Fr John lived for the fourteen years when he was was a curate in Boolavogue.

Oulart Hill, Scarawalsh and Ballyorril Hill are all on our route, as we make our way back to Enniscorthy. Our final stop will be Vinegar Hill, site of the famous battle and one of the largest ever fought on Irish soil.

With live commentary and audio, this tour will captivate and enthral you as you journey through the Wexford countryside.
