German twinning delegation visit Oct 2023

Delighted to be asked to come to the CoachHouse Coffee eatery to meet and talk with the Märkischer Kreis delegation for thirty minutes about the stunning region of Kilmacthomas and the Waterford Greenway. Having an opportunity to stand and showcase the area was a real privilege as the delegation had such a busy itinerary the few days they had come over from Germany, so being added to their hectic schedule was so great. Waterford City & County Mayor Joe Conway also attended this occasion.

Waterford as a county has so much to offer visitors and I got the sense that the German delegation really felt welcome and experienced how friendly we are as a county for visitors, for far too long we’ve been the hidden gem of Ireland that only the locals know about and kept secret. The delegation was a mix of persons from many fields of interest such as Arts, Culture, Heritage, Industry etc. so to get their full attention during the talk followed with a Q&A session was fantastic.

Adrian Dunbar’s : My Ireland 2022

Season two of this very successful TV travel programme was recorded this summer and Adrian Dunbar visited the heart of the award winning Waterford Greenway and I had the privilege in sitting down to chat to him in the public park at Kilmacthomas village about what the greenway means to the county and all the advantages it has brought to the area in the last 5 years.

Stunning views were captured of the famous Kilmacthomas viaduct which stood proudly in the backdrop at the public park. This new season will air in around the Autumn of 2022 on Channel 5 UK, and Virgin Media One in the spring of 2023.
