New Ross is located on the banks of the river Barrow, 34km west of Wexford town. There are now more things to do in New Ross than ever before as it has become more tourist orientated. If you are interested in tracing your family roots in the Wexford region then contact the John F Kennedy Trust who are located in the Tourist Office on Quay Street. Saint Mary's Church a Gothic building which is located in Church Lane is recommended a visit, the church dates 13th century but time has taken its toll and all that now remains is a ruin. Contained inside the ruin is a great collection of early medieval tombstones. The river Barrow provides the visitor with unlimited activities such as angling and boat cruising. Also there are enjoyable walks along the Barrow.
