Waterford City

Waterford (Port Lairge in Irish) was Ireland's first city, founded by the vikings in 914 AD and today Waterford is the fifth largest city in the Republic of Ireland. Waterford  is, historically, the capital of County Waterford in Ireland, though today the county town is Dungarvan.

Waterford has a fine shopping centre, although traffic through the city and parking are currently an issue. The former will be greatly improved when a new bypass opens in the very near future and directs the main bulk of traffic around the city .

Waterford is also an important education and industrial centre, and like other coastal cities this has had an impact in the economy and society. The most famous product of the city is Waterford Crystal which originated when a glassmaking factory was opened in the city in 1783.

The city is an important transport centre, the Iarnrod Eireann railway system has lines to Dublin, Limerick and Wexford. Several important roads in Ireland meet at Waterford, the N9 road is the main road to Dublin (via the N7 road) and also passes Kilkenny, Carlow, and Kildare, among others. Waterford has its own international Airport and the Port of Waterford can even accomodate large ships.

In 2005 Waterford hosted numerous tall ships prior to the Tall Ships Race and this spectacular sight was so successful a repeat performance is due in 2011.
