A visit to Enniscorthy in Wexford to learn about the people and their town.
This excerpt from the report features shots of the town of Enniscorthy taking in the 12th century Norman castle, the Catholic Cathedral, the mills and the malt houses, and Vinegar Hill.
The visitor's first impression is of a thriving prosperity. The town has charm and character and the people obviously take pride in its appearance.
The shopfronts in the town display unusual names as a reminder of the long history of plantations in County Wexford since Norman times.
On his visit to the town reporter John Skehan talks to locals about life and work in the Wexford town. One man whose family have been in the town for five generations is the owner of the local Astor cinema Andy Doyle. Andy describes the scope for private enterprise and the potential to attract further tourists to the town. However, he says that the local business needs to work together to exploit such this opportunity.
'Discovery In Enniscorthy' was written and produced by Colm O Laoghaire was broadcast on 10 November 1966. The reporter is John Skehan.
