Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city, established by the Vikings, has been witness to many significant historical events.
From the marriage of Strongbow & Aoife, it became a vibrant location of religious devotion which earned it the nickname Parva Roma – Little Rome -  to the splendour of the Georgian period, Waterford City documents those momentous events but also the lesser known stories such as the first frog to be recorded in Ireland to the invention of the cream cracker.
This study looks at the social and economic history of the city from Vikings to Victorians covering its notable characters who impacted the local, national and sometimes international scene
