The sermon at St. Iberius Church was delivered by retired Commandant Ciaron Kavanagh who spoke movingingly about the some of the Wexford people who had lost their lives in conflict.

From St. Iberius Church, the procession followed the colour party to Redmond Square where the Mayor, Cllr. George Lawlor, laid a wreath at the memorial to Wexford's war dead which was unveiled earlier in the year.

The Loch Garman Band performed during the ceremonies, which were attended by representatives from the various uniformed bodies, the ONE, the Order of Malta, the UN Veterans, the Gardai and members of Wexford Borough Council.

Cllr. Lawlor said it was the borough council's wish that Remembrance Day will become an annual event to be marked in the town.
