We Welcome Wexford's Newest Mayor

jim allen 2Last evening Councillor Jim Allen (FG) was elected Mayor of Wexford Town for the coming year. He is the last in a long line of mayors. The first Charter for the town on record is that of 1317. The Mayoral Seal of office still in use was granted in 1689 by James II. Each year the new Mayor adds a link to a Chain of Office with his name and his year of office engraved on that link. A pre-Victorian Mace is carried before the Mayor on ceremonial occasions.
