THE Rebels and Redcoats will return to Vinegar Hill to recreate a decisive battle in the Irish Rebellion of 1798.
Hundreds of battle re-enactors from Ireland, Scotland and England, will descend on Enniscorthy, Co Wexford, over the August bank holiday.
Pike-wielding Irish Rebels and musket-carrying British Redcoats will re-create the famous battle this Saturday and Sunday.
The Battle of Vinegar Hill took place on June 21, 1798 and began shortly before dawn as British forces began an artillery bombardment of rebel forces on the hill.
