Enniscorthy (Irish: Inis Córthaidh) is a town in County Wexford situated on the River Slaney. It was originally a Norman settlement and is now most famous for its role in the 1798 rebellion in Ireland where the odd looking and famous Vinegar Hill which overlooks the town, served as the camp and headquarters for the rebels. This was also the site of the Battle of Vinegar Hill.
