Last Outing of the Season: The T F Meagher Trail

On 26 July 2012 we followed Dr J M Hearne through the streets of Waterford to the various locations associated with the Meagher family. We met outside the Granville Hotel, birth place of T F Meagher.

 We moved on to O'Connell St where the Meaghers lived first, at number 51,

and where they had a business where the Granary stands today. 

Dr J M Hearne reading quotes from T F Meagher. 

We then made our way to the Mall - The Meagher family had lived at number 19  (now the Sabai Restaurant), the Tricolour was first flown at number 33 (now Mint CafĂ©) and of course the monument to T F Meagher stands proud on the Mall.
