Waterford The Essential
Interesting
Waterford, a large industrial seaport, dominates the south bank of the Suir upstream from its confluence with the River Barrow in Waterford Harbour. Famous for its crystal, the town's economic prosperity has been based largely on glassware since the fifties, when the industry was revived. Danish Vikings founded Vadrefjord Colony here in 853. Under their rule, Waterford became the second Anglo-Norman town in Ireland, after Dublin.
