Outdoor hospitality returned to towns and coastal areas across Co. Wexford today –alfresco style -the rain stayed away and there was an air of achievement and confidence in the future of the economy once again! Most importantly many people returned to work!
Special dining areas were erected outside of premises in the towns which must be a temporary measure or a change in the bye-laws will be necessary. However, until indoor hospitality returns this is the way forward…weather permitting!
Large numbers visited Co. Wexford over the weekend and there were long tailbacks on the Wexford side of Oylegate village this evening as many exited the county.
Coastal areas were busy. The weather was kind. New traffic management arrangements were installed at several popular seaside resorts and everything appears to have worked out well. Plans are underway to provide shuttle bus services at Morriscastle and Curracloe going forward into the summer.
Gardai have been very active over the weekend and they report that everything went smoothly and there is nothing of serious consequence to report. Wexford County Council will also be reviewing events over the June Bank Holiday.
