Launch of Two Wonder Wander Walking Trails in Waterford City and County

The launch of the Wonder Wander Walking Trails for Cappoquin and Waterford City will take place on Monday, April 22nd.

The National Inventory of Architectural Heritage has produced two Wonder Wander Walking Trails in association with Waterford City and County Council.  

Commenting on the trails, Rose Ryall Conservation Officer with Waterford City and County Council said that the aim of these trails is to celebrate a sense of place by exploring the rich and diverse heritage of the Architectural Conservation Areas (ACA) in the historic cores of Cappoquin and Waterford City.

As part of the project, community workshops and drop-in information sessions were held to facilitate discussion, storytelling, and interpretation. Engaging with local schools was particularly rewarding, enriching both the trail maps as well as raising public awareness of our built heritage.
