Inch (Irish: Inse Mocholmóg) is located in County Wexford, Ireland on the R772 road between Arklow and Gorey. In September 2007 Inch was bypassed, having formerly been on the N11 Dublin to Wexford road. There is a creamery here run by Glanbia.

Transport[edit]

  • Inch had a station on the Dublin to Rosslare railway line, but the station is now closed. Inch railway station opened on 1 July 1885, closed for goods traffic on 9 June 1947, and finally closed altogether on 30 March 1964.[1]
  • Inch is served by Bus Éireann route 2, which operates between Dublin Airport and Rosslare Harbour. However, the number of services through Inch was reduced from 18 January 2009 following the implementation of a new timetable.[2]
