12 Things To See & Do in Co. Waterford
So, from my Facebook page you will see that I’ve spent the last two week’s catching up with family and friends in my hometown of Carrick-on-Suir in South Tipperary. It was a great opportunity to explore the neighbouring county, Co. Waterford – the home county of both my parents, my parents’ parents and even THEIR parents’ parents. So, you see why I have a real affinity for County Waterford!
County Waterford (Irish: Contae Phort Láirge) is in the province of Munster. The population of the county at large, including the city of Waterford, was 127,085 according to the 2022 census. The county is based on the historic Gaelic territory of the Déise, hence my blog title. 😊
Over the two weeks visiting Co. Waterford, I’ve seen some great places and met some great people. This week’s blog is therefore on “My Déise Dozen - 12 Things to See & Do in Co. Waterford”. There are a few places I visited which I have omitted from this post that I actually think are “Must Sees” in my opinion e.g., the Waterford Greenway, the Nire Valley, Melleray Abbey and Mount Congreve. But I reckon that they are so popular that you may have heard of or seen them already. So, my Déise Dozen are the less well-known sights. Enjoy! (And apologies to those who’ve seen my Facebook posts over the last two weeks! 😊)
