Guided Coach Tour of the Surrounding Countryside

Coach Tour of Sites of Interest in West Waterford

 

Participants will be taken on a journey from the pastoral landscape of the Blackwater Valley to the sea shore at Dungarvan and on to the uplands of the Knockmealdown mountains. Along the way they will learn about some extraordinary figures from the area: especially those who contributed to science. Stops will include Affane where Valentine Greatrakes lived and is buried and Abbeyside the birthplace of Ireland’s only Nobel laureate in science, Ernest Walton. .

Guided by Donald Brady, former Waterford County Librarian and author of Waterford Scientists.
