Site Details

The Min Ryan Park in Wexford town, provides a high quality and attractive open public space which is accessible to all. The Park is named after historic figure Min Ryan from Tomcoole in Barntown, who played a huge role in Ireland’s development in revolutionary years.

Min Ryan served in the G.P.O. and Jacob’s factory during the 1916 Rising. A donation of €200,000 towards the cost of the park was made by her grandson Richard Mulcahy and his family.

The Park boasts an array of attractive features, including a playground, picnic area, dog park, memorial garden, walking track, water features, multi-use events area, skate park and play spaces.

The Park also includes a series of rich, biodiverse eco-systems such as a wetland area, wild flower meadows and native woodland habitats. 500 native tree saplings were planted on 19th April as part of the 100 Million Trees Project.
