Oulart Hill - A Walk in History


While the summit is an easy flat stroll across a field from the car park, the hill itself is steeped in history. As several MV members have already said there was a battle on Oulart hill which was part of the Wexford Rebellion of 1798.
The summit and trig pillar of Oulart Hill.

After finding the Trig Pillar we back tracked to the car park and visited the monument - Tulach a’ tSolais - which is well worth the visit. From the car park to the monument there are memorial stones of the the different locations of battles and local heroes. The walk to Tulach a’ tSolais is known as the Path of Glory(Cosán na Glóire) and as you walk along this path you have a sense of marching along side history. The views are pleasant and the info-signs of battles which, for some may be long forgotten, or even unknown by others - for example yours truly - or simply, local history waiting to be explored. Oulart is a fun outing.

The Jean Kennedy Smith trail is a looped walk which we explored and takes you through woodlands, open hill side, county lanes and back roads and through the small village of Oulart. Wexford walking trails website has maps and all the info you need (http://wexfordwalkingtrail.ie/oulart/) as does the website: http://oularthill.ie/. Truly a fun day out waiting to be had!
