Cromwell Guard


There was an old Cromwellian fort in Wexford Town. We were always told a story of a local man who walked past this fort every evening and who insisted that each night he saw a Cromwellian soldier guarding the gate. Not believing him, his friends decided to pay a trick on him so one of them donned the uniform of one of Cromwell’s guards and stood at the gate of the fort waiting for his mate to walk past .. After waiting about half an hour his mate walked past and exclaimed ‘Jeez, there’s two of them tonight’.
