Waterford Treasures is staging a brand new early evening theatre show at the Medieval Museum entitled This is Waterford! - the true and complete history of Waterford in just one hour and fifteen minutes. This is Waterford tells 1100 years of Waterford's history squashed into a highly entertaining 75 minutes, with some singing, a bit of slapstick, storytelling and then some more singing. It's hilarious, yet educational. Okay, educational might be stretching it a bit but it's very entertaining and it tells the story of Ireland's oldest city in a lot less time than 1100 years. This theatrical cocktail includes Viking pirates, princes and preachers; Blackfriars, Greyfriars, deep fat fryers and bodhran drums. It's a luck dip into the past and it's on every Saturday and Sunday evening throughout September at 6.30pm at the Medieval Museum in The Viking Triangle.

    As dry as the SaharaIt seems that whenever the weather in Ireland goes a little bit extreme, we are somehow incapable of dealing with it. It has already happened so far this year with the snow that totally disrupted the country for about a week and also later on when some areas in the country were flooded due to excess rain.
