Wexford is the county town of County Wexford, Ireland. It is near the southeastern corner of the island of Ireland, close to Rosslare Europort. It has a population of 19,913 (2011 census). County Wexford was the most important area in which the Irish Rebellion of 1798 was fought, during which significant battles occurred at Vinegar Hill (Enniscorthy) and New Ross.
The famous ballad Boolavogue was written in remembrance of the Wexford Rising. At Easter 1916, a small rebellion occurred at Enniscorthy town, on cue with that in Dublin. During World War II, German planes bombed Campile. In 1963 John F. Kennedy, then President of the United States, visited the county and his ancestral home at Dunganstown, near New Ross. Until the mid-nineteenth century the Yola language could be heard in Wexford, and a few words still remain in use.
