“Rediscovering Ancient Connections – The Saints”

It will revive the ancient links between communities in Pembrokeshire and Wexford using our shared heritage of St David and his pupil and protégé St Aidan.  St David is the patron saint of Wales, commemorated in the city of St Davids where he spent much of his life, whilst St Aidan is closely associated with Wexford, in particular Ferns.  One objective of the operation is to motivate both communities to rediscover their shared heritage; to be a mentor for each other; and to share knowledge, experience and skills.  Another is to use this shared heritage as a means of attracting people to the cross-border region, specifically to Wexford and to Pembrokeshire (both “coastal communities”), who would not otherwise do so.
