PUBLISHED BY THE THREE ROCKS ’98 GROUP MAY 1998
In 1798 for Wexford town and the surrounding parishes, the Battle of the Three Rocks has a special significance. This is not surprising. When one looks at the masses of pikemen who congregated at the Three Rocks one can easily understand that there is hardly a household in south Wexford that did not have a forebear or a relative involved in the battle. The battle itself might be described as the first victory of major significance of the 1798 rising. It was the event that led to the capture of Wexford town. This success gave the rebel forces the confidence to realise that they were capable of achieving their ultimate aim of setting up a republic. This book was published in commemoration of 1798 to pay tribute and honour to those who took part in that rising.
