Dating from pre-Middle Ages, the port of New Ross nestled on the Barrow river was once home to the Norman knight William Marshall and his bride Isabella de Clare. An important crossing point in the river, the town has also witnessed some bloody battles during the Irish Confederate War in the 1640s and the 1798 Rebellion.
You will find this colourful history intricately depicted in a very special community project in the town, The Ros Tapestry. Ongoing since 1998 the project has involved over 150 stitchers working on 15 very large tapestries that make up a permanent exhibition – now one of the largest series of embroidered tapestries in Europe.
More recently this area has become more well known for its association with U.S. President, John F Kennedy.
Anfield Road in Liverpool, home to Liverpool Football Club was named after the old town land of Annefield in New Ross!
