Ken Murphy, born and bred in Wexford, is a real ambassador for his home town and tells us his reasons why he thinks Wexford is the perfect place to live. . .
“What’s not to love about living in Wexford. It’s known as ‘The Sunny Southeast’, and the sunshine provides us with the best fruit and vegetables on our doorsteps. I travel a lot around the country and there are always signs for ‘Wexford Strawberries and Wexford Potatoes to be seen everywhere.’ We have amazing beaches, forests and wildlife reserves where we can enjoy our sunshine but that are also spectacular during Winter time.
Economically, Wexford isn’t a bad place to live either. Rosslare Europort provides a gateway to Europe. It is a great shopping town, it has high employment, several new schools and is the headquarters of many global companies.
We have huge and varied sports clubs – GAA, soccer, rugby, horse racing, tennis and boat clubs to name but a few, along with many stunning golf clubs.
Our cultural participation is vast. We have the National Opera House in our town which hosts the world renowned Opera Festival. This in turn brings about many fringe events and also the Spiegeltent Festival to our stunning quay front. We have all sorts of music festivals, we have several drama festivals and we have many traditional Irish musicians that are renowned throughout the country.
Add to all that the pubs, clubs and restaurants . . . what a place! I think I shall never leave!”
