The Disqualified Round Towers of Ireland

Ferrycarrig (Co. Wexford) – visited 7 August 1998

A tower on a bluff above the road on the south bank of the Slaney by Ferrycarrig bridge, two miles upstream from Wexford, is a nineteenth-century copy of a round tower erected as a memorial to the men of Wexford who died in the crimean war. It resembles a round tower when seen from a distance and is of similar dimensions but is of very inferior construction. (B.)
