This new photograph taken to display the changing landscape around Enniscorthy combines the past and present and the new Business Hub emerging alongside the mid-19th century brickwork and turrets of the disused St. Senan’s Hospital.
On August 3rd 2018 the first sod was turned at Enniscorthy Business and Technology Park which is a €2.5 million project to be built beside the River Slaney on a 35-acre site at Killagoley on what was once part of the farm land for St. Senan’s Hospital.
Speaking on that occasion the then Chairman of Wexford County Council, Cllr Keith Doyle said; “The Technology Park has the potential to bring hundreds of jobs to Enniscorthy and will be the key to economic revitalisation of Enniscorthy town.”
The steel arrived and the new building is progressing well. And also in the picture the Rosslare Harbour to Dublin train arrives at Enniscorthy. The railway needs support too, no point in crying crocodile tears if Irish Rail were to sideline Enniscorthy at any time in the future!
