Short Summary created by wicklore,  8 Apr 2014
Oulart Hill was the scene of a battle in the Wexford Rebellion of 1798. The Battle took place on 27 May 1798 when a gathering of 1,000 rebels annihilated a detachment of militia sent from Wexford town to stamp out the spreading rebellion in county Wexford. A monument was built in 1998 to commemorate the Wexford Rebellion, and this is situated about 900 metres to the south of the main Oulart Hill summit. The monument is a large grassy mound with a hollow centre that can be walked through – like a modern day Newgrange. It is ‘split’ in half to let sunlight enter. A car park is situated on the road that crosses Oulart Hill and this can be used as the starting point to easily reach both the summit and monument.

Head north from Oulart Village to the Oulart Hill car park at T 08468 41225 A. From here the summit is a very short walk across a field to the north. Go through a gap in the hedge and keep to the edge of the wheat field. Find the trig pillar at the junction of four fields in the north west corner of the field. Fine views over rolling country side and Slieveboy to the north.

Go back to the car park. Follow a good track south for several minutes to the monument. The path has many large rocks engraved with the names of town lands from where the rebels hailed who fought in the Wexford Rebellion. Don’t slip on the slippy paving inside the monument and don’t let yourself or children fall into the mound from the top if you climb up the grassy mound.
