“Had a great day in the heart of the Waterford Greenway and stunning County Waterford. Stephen is a natural on camera……. now we’re suckin’ diesel.”

Adrian Dunbar

Irish Professional Actor/Director and TV personality

Recording of Adrian Dunbar’s My Ireland 30th July 2022

“Stephen leads a most enjoyable walk in Kilmacthomas that no visitor should miss. His vast knowledge ranges from the construction of the Greenway Viaduct – the only curved viaduct in Ireland and a marvellous testimony to the skill of the engineers almost two hundred years ago, to what Daniel O Connell actually said to the good citizens of the town when trying to get them to support his campaign for Catholic emancipation in the 1820’s.

He is fascinating about the river Mahon and its importance in powering the mills in the town, not to speak of how it thwarted Oliver Cromwell, and he can recreate the terrible period in Ireland typified by the Workhouse building. You will see Kilmac in a new light after a tour with Stephen.”
