Fáilte, Croeso, Welcome – Ancient Connections is reviving the ancient links between North Wexford and North Pembrokeshire, Ireland and Wales, in order to create sustainable tourism in and between these regions. Over the next few years we will be hosting new events and festivals, commissioning works of art, working with communities and businesses, reviving traditional skills, training up new storytelling ambassadors and excavating our past!… all in the name of sharing, celebrating and welcoming new visitors from across the seas.
