Event Description

Barntown Quarry is an interesting site to paint just a couple of miles outside Wexford. It can be a bit mucky underfoot if its been raining, but it is well worth the trouble.

Directions from south: From Mountain Bar on the New Line Road (R733 Wexford to Wellingtonbridge), turn North. Follow the road right, uphill to its apex. Take the wide track to the right (just after a very modern dwelling set back on the right and the quarry is approx 250metres drive further along. park at the boulders.
Or, from the Maldron Hotel Roundabout on N25 just outside Wexford:take New Ross exit, then first exit left (signed for the famous Paul Maloney Pottery). Drive uphill about 3km to a T-junction, take left and then immediate right turn. Drive further 100 metres and then take a right fork marked in stone 'Matts Lane'. This brings you to the other side of the quarry to the southern approach but it is a small site so you should have no trouble finding other painters. Again, park near the stone boulders.

NB This paint out replaces Rathdrum as our destination as so many are unable to make that venue. Hopefully, we will try again on another day.

There's a joke there somewhere about having a pot to pee in but I better just leave it...

The pottery is only a paint flick from the quarry, so if anyone needs to freshen up please feel free to use our facilities.
