Outing to Kilbarry Church with Dave Pollock 27/08/23

 Join us at Kilbarry at 2pm on Sunday afternoon for our last Waterford Archaeological and Historical Society outing of the summer when Dave Pollock, local archaeologist, will show us around Kilbarry church and graveyard in Waterford's western suburbs.

We meet on Sunday, August 27th at 2pm in the Lacken Road Business Park (X91 YK49)


Kilbarry is best known for the remains of its medieval church, which was controlled by the Knights Templar in the 12th and 13th century. However, this part of Waterford has a rich heritage stretching from the earliest Neolithic farmers to the late medieval period which has been revealed in a series of archaeological excavations directed by Dave Pollock in the vicinity of the church.

Members Free, & €5 for Non-Members.
