New Ross


New Ross

Irish  Ros Mhic Thriaúin (“Wood of the Son of Treon”) 

      port town, County Wexford, Ireland. It lies along the River Barrow (Barrow, River), just below the latter's junction with the Nore. In the 6th century St. Abban founded the abbey of Rossmactreoin, which gave rise to the ancient city Rossglas, or Rossponte. By 1269 the town, which stands on a steep hill overlooking the river, was walled. New Ross's inland waterway reaches Dublin by means of the Barrow and the Grand Canal. The port was Ireland's most important, and it still handles a significant amount of trade. New Ross has breweries, a salmon fishery, and a fertilizer factory. Barges are constructed in the town. Tourism also is an important source of income. The nearby village of Dunganstown was the ancestral home of the U.S. president John F. Kennedy (Kennedy, John F.), whose great-grandfather sailed for the United States from New Ross in the 1840s. Pop. (2002) 4,810.
