The best of what’s on Waterford

Some of the best comedy shows, festivals and a little something for everyone comes to Waterford this September.

It’s really great to see so much happening again around Waterford from now until the end of September. It might be the end of Summer, but with so much to look forward to, we happily round up and share some of the best of what’s on over the next few weeks for you and yours to enjoy!

Colour your heritage with Anthony Hayes

Every day this week, local Artis Tony Hayes will be posting lots of Dungarvan archaeology and heritage sketches online as part of Colour Dungarvans Heritage. All you have to do is print the sketches at home, get the kids to colour them in and return them. Waterford County Museum will then show off the kid’s artwork throughout the week. Children can also create and design their own Gallows Hill or other history-inspired pictures. Entries will be included in a Dungarvan Heritage Coloring book in 2021 so get colouring! Check out what else is on during Heritage Week 2020
