Wexford, Ireland


Erin Go Bragh!

Savannah, Georgia, and Wexford, Ireland, share a unique and fascinating connection that transcends across the Atlantic Ocean. This connection can be traced back to the 18th century, when Irish immigrants, mainly from Wexford, settled in Savannah, leaving an indelible mark on the city's culture and heritage. The influence of these Irish settlers can still be seen today in Savannah's architecture, traditions, and, most famously, its St. Patrick's Day celebrations - among the largest in the United States. This endless bond between Savannah and Wexford is a testament to the power of cultural exchange and the lasting impact of immigrant communities on the places they call home.
