Located at the former tourist office between Rosslare Harbour & Kilrane, it is hoped the centre will be something the whole community can be part of. The main theme will be local, national and international maritime history with a portion of the centre being dedicated to local heritage including genealogy etc. The Rosslare Maritime Enthusiasts are looking for volunteers to help run the centre, so if you can spare an hour, please get in touch. We will also host a fortnight-long exhibition by the renowned maritime artist, Brian Cleare as part of the Wexford Festival Fringe 2012.
