It’s spring­time and Christ­mas on the quayfront!

Wexford People - - NEWS -

SPRING is in the air on Wex­ford quayfront with only a few weeks to go un­til Christ­mas!

Richard John Kuhn couldn’t be­lieve his eyes when strolling on the quayfront last week.

Some of the trees are sprout­ing new leaves al­ready, af­ter shed­ding the last of the au­tumn ones just re­cently.

‘This was very un­usual to see. There was beau­ti­ful sunshine at the time and it was warm’, said Richard, a na­tive of Cape Town, South Africa who has been liv­ing since March in Wex­ford where he has fam­ily con­nec­tions.

Af­ter tak­ing some pho­to­graphs as proof, he said :‘I hope it makes peo­ple aware of how the climate is chang­ing. In Wex­ford I no­ticed the sim­i­lar­ity to South African coastal ero­sion (with out of sea­son plant growths!) and specif­i­cally da­m­age south of Ross­lare and from Wex­ford to the Wild­fowl Re­serve and North Slob, be­hind the dyke’.
