Comeraghs Wild Festival 2022

Heritage Week 2022
On the Evening of Wednesday August 17th, I provided a group of 10 attendees my walking tour around Kilmacthomas for 2 hours starting at the doors of the Public Library in Kilmacthomas village. This was to share all the local heritage, flora and fauna & intriguing stories with those that did the guided walk. The response was great and some fantastic reviews were left on Tripadvisor afterwards.
Many heritage week events were offered to the public throughout the country so the public could pick and choose which events to attend.

Everyone enjoyed the experience and the TripAdvisor reviews reflect this enjoyment too.
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.
