On Friday 1st April 2022, we launched our information booklet entitled "County Wexford War of Independence and Civil War: an educational resource" which charts the events and timeline of the War of Independence and the Civil War in County Wexford.
It is a resource for young people from 4th class to 3rd year. The booklet was researched and written by local historian, Monica Crofton and edited by Senior Executive Librarian, Hazel Percival and Library Assistant, Michael Dempsey. It was designed by Nicola Bailey.
Each school in Wexford was sent a set of booklets. If your school would like extra copies of the booklet, contact our Local Studies Librarian at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 053 919 6330.
An electronic version of the booklet can be found here.
