Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A well deserved statue of Nicky Rackard, who being from Wexford is known for being one of the best hurlers. Well worth a quick walk over to see the statue

    We were touring in the area and looking for a walk and "Google" took us here. We were directed to what was probably an unofficial way in through someone's garden which seemed to be a right of way! (Lovely garden!) we walked along the edge of a barley field and then into a wood walk. When the wood ended we were in a field with this monument! It was a total surprise for us! There was a board explaining the mound with the concrete passageway through it. Being a fan of monuments aligned with the Equinox or the Solstice it was a great and pleasant surprise to literally stumble on this site! Amazing! We continued along the track with the various boards explaining the stones and place names connected to the Oulart Hill 1798 Battlefield until we got to the main carpark! Being surrounded by views and agricultural land added to the lovely walk. The various sites in and around Oulart should be advertised more! Whoever developed it put lots of effort into it - well done.

    The pikeman 1798 Rebellion Statue is located in an area known as the Bull Ring in the heart of Wexford.

    The statue it stands on a tiered stone plinth surrounded by shops, bar, cafes. The front of the plinth has the year 1798 chiselled into it.

    The statue commemorates the 200th anniversary of the Irish Rebellion. It depicts a lone Pikeman with his pike held in his hand pointing skywards. The man looks as if he is perhaps walking or even marching.

    The pike was the weapon of choice used during the Rebellion mainly by the peasant rebels. It became the symbol of the Rebellionwhich lasted from 24th May to 23rd September 1798. It resulted in victory for the British and the introduction of the Acts of Union in 1800

    We saw this monument from the road and decided to investigate further! There is a little car park with an information board. After a short walk you reach the base of the monument. The actual monument is not open to the public. The surrounding views are lovely. How they made something like this is amazing!
