Wexford County Council’s Access Section are launching a new pilot project, entitled the ‘Advanced Digital Access Participation Project’ (ADAPP), to coincide with the launch of National Heritage Week 2022
The project is supported by the Disability Participation & Awareness Fund, an initiative of the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth.
This project, through the creation of virtual tours and QR codes, provides alternative access for all to enjoy and explore five key heritage sites - one in each of the five Municipal and Borough Districts of County Wexford.
The sites chosen for the pilot project are St. Patrick’s Church in Wexford Town; Fethard Castle; Enniscorthy Castle; St. Mary’s Church in Bannow; and Tulach a’ tSolais at Oulart Hill.
A video about the pilot project, which includes brief introductory messages from Tom Enright, Chief Executive and Cllr. George Lawlor, Cathaoirleach, has been produced which you can view below.
Also included below are links to each virtual tour of the five sites, where the wonderful features can be explored and accessed by all.
