Check out Waterford's No.1 midweek live music session Thursday the 9th of May as we welcome back the Waxies. The Waxies, as a concept, started from the moment John and Tony were born in the late 60's, early 70's.

Around this time they formed an original rock band which was successful around the south east. By the time 1997 came though, they were pulling their hair out!

    HealthCatastropheMary Harney, when she was Minister for Health, many years ago, declared that 300 people on trolleys in hospital corridors was a 'health crisis'.
