The Wexford Trails, which were developed and supported by Wexford Local Development, are exhibiting today at the Golden Shears (The World Sheep Shearing Festival) which is taking place in Gorey.

Rural dwellers from all over the world are visiting Gorey this weekend and it is the ideal opportunity to publicise the best of Wexford, under the Wexford Trails banner.
