Lost Wexford : Nicky Rossiter :
Lost Wexford is NOT based on the book of that name published last year. The presentation will use copious illustrations to uncover lost, changed and hidden Wexford. Nicky will explain some of what is shown, add some stories connected to them and generally encourage the evaluation of photographs of the past with information, interest and a “bit of fun”.
Nicky Rossiter is the author/co-author of 12 full length books as well as numerous articles in journals and newspapers on the history of Wexford Town. He was the writer/presenter of the long running “Stories” series on South East Radio and has broadcast on Sunday Miscellany. His plays with Wexford Youth Theatre often used social history as a theme. In over three decades he has amassed a considerable archive of material on the town and its social history. He will achieve the “baker’s dozen” of book with the publication in a few weeks of “Main Street – the heart of Wexford”.
