Cross-Border Stories Pamphlet

This booklet was created by Abarta Heritage and Angharad Wynne on behalf of Rediscovering Ancient Connections, a cross-community project which seeks to rediscover and revive the shared heritage between north County Wexford and northwest Pembrokeshire. This shared heritage extends back to our earliest monuments, connects our patron saints and brings us up to modern times.

While researching these ancient connections, a number of interesting stories were shared with us. Many of these stories focused on the friendship between St David, the patron saint of Wales and St Aidan, the patron saint of County Wexford, which this pilgrimage route is based around.

Below you will find ten of our favourite connecting stories about St David & St Aidan, Norman knights, pirates and daring adventurers. We hope you enjoy these stories as much as we have.
