While peaceful places generally, Co Wexford's churches remain even more silent than usual. While some priests around the diocese have thoroughly embraced technology as a means of keeping in touch with parishioners, for many the inability to visit their local church has left an inescapable void for them.

With the exception of severely curtailed funeral services, everything else has been postponed until the dust settles on the pandemic.
