Carrick, County Wexford: Ireland's first Anglo-Norman stronghold

Carrick, County Wexford: Ireland's first Anglo-Norman stronghold
Carrick, Co. Wexford, is one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood medieval sites in Ireland.
Built in the autumn and winter of 1169 by Robert Fitzstephen, one of the first knights to land at Bannow Bay, Carrick is the oldest Anglo-Norman fortification in the country. The site developed as an important borough in the thirteenth century and it was home to one of the first Marshal castles in the south-east. It was also the site of one of Ireland's earliest Anglo-Norman deerparks. Despite its historical significance, the site has passed in and out of public consciousness.
