Fr Murphy 1798 Centre
Opening Hours: Monday to Friday 10am - 5pm Sundays from 11am - 5pm
Tomnaboley Lower, County Wexford, Ireland
This family-friendly environment is a haven of peace in a rural setting with something available for all age groups.
The Centre spans a 250-year period embracing both the historical and rural aspects of the area.
Fr. John Murphy was the Curate at Boolavogue from 1785 to 1798. He lived with the Donoghue family in the Townsland of Tomnaboley (an Irish word that means “the place for gathering the cows”) which is now known as the Fr. Murphy Centre until he went to lead the local insurgents in the 1798 Rebellion.
Hear his story as you wander around this typical traditional Irish farmyard and pose for some great photos with the vintage farming tools!
