Maritime Festival Launches New Maritime & Heritage Cultural Trial

#MaritimeFestival – As previously reported on Afloat.ie the 2nd John Barry Maritime Festival (20-23 June) starts this week and is a celebration of the Wexford-born Commodore John Barry, father of the US Navy.

The four-day festival covers Wexford's rich maritime heritage and culture where all proceeds go towards the Wexford RNLI. Keeping to a nautical theme, a new Maritime Heritage & Cultural Trial takes place this Thursday, the opening day of the festival.

The walking trail takes in the narrow streets where there are more than 12 stops which includes 'A History of Wexford Ships' held in the Wexford Tourist Office and is free of charge. Or take in an Interactive Maritime Exhibition in the Wexford Library.

Also not to be missed... is the John Barry and JFK Photographic Exhibition in the Talbot Hotel, again this is free to the public. For details of the festival full programme visit: www.jbmf.ie/en/festival/festival-programme-2013
