The County Wexford Crest
The county Wexford crest features the Tower of Hook as a symbol of Anglo-Norman south Wexford. The gaelic north of the county is represented by the MacMurchada lion. The two parts are divided by the river Slaney along which Celtic groups, represented by spear heads, entered south-east Ireland. The motto Exemplar Hiberniae (an example for Ireland), is derived from the county's reputation as the 'model county'.
