WATERFORD, A COUNTY REVEALED

“Waterford, A County Revealed” is unique as the only purely photographic book fully illustrating the beauty of the county. With the oldest city in Ireland; pretty fishing ports; a 19th Century mining legacy; prehistoric artifacts; ancient castles and charming villages, it’s a wonderful heritage just waiting to be explored.

It’s not hard to imagine on completing the project, how delighted I was, when Dervla Murphy, a remarkable lady, well known travel writer and native of Waterford, agreed to write a forward. In her 90s she described herself as “reluctantly retired from writing books.”

When she sadly passed away earlier this year (2022) the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins said, “Her contribution to writing, and to travel writing in particular, had a unique commitment to the value of human experience in all its diversity.”

Available in soft or hardback, with 160 lavishly illustrated pages in a convenient 10″X8″ format, getting it couldn’t be easier. All that’s required is a short online visit and the book can be sent directly to yourself or distant family and friends. Just click the following link: Waterford Revealed Bookstore for details.   You’ll be in good company, here’s a few comments from readers…
