Backroads to the Rising – Easter Monday, March 28th

backroads poster

Backroads to the Rising is a community walk project devised by artists Aileen Lambert and Michael Fortune and commissioned by The Arts Department of Wexford County Council.

Backroads to the Rising set outs to remember the journeys undertaken by the men and women from throughout the county during the Rising. There are numerous accounts of walks and cycles undertaken by volunteers from Askamore and Kilmuckridge as they made their way into Enniscorthy for The Rising.

Through community involvement, walkers and cyclists will travel on four different routes – north, south, east and west – to converge in Enniscorthy for Centenary Celebrations on Easter Monday.

Get Involved:

Families, individuals, community groups, schools, sporting organisations, active retirement groups, scouts and guides etc are all encouraged to attend. For further information please contact Michael or Aileen by phone on 087 6470247/087 7552593 or by email at micfortune@gmail.com or aileenlambert@gmail.com

Each route is staged and timed to suit people of all abilities.
