Wexford is a town in southeast Ireland, at the mouth of the River Slaney. It's known for its medieval lanes and the opera festival held in the modern National Opera House. West Gate Heritage Tower is a restored 13th-century tollgate. It's next to the old town walls and ruined 12th-century Selskar Abbey. The Bullring market place, once a bull-baiting site, has a statue marking the 1798 Rebellion against British rule.
