Waterford successful in renewing prestigious Purple Flag accreditation

Waterford is celebrating being awarded a Purple Flag for the third time. Waterford is now one of over 70 towns and cities across the UK and Ireland who have been awarded with Purple Flag status for their achievements in helping people to have a great night out.

The committee submitted a detailed renewal application in January 2019, and the city went through a rigorous independent assessment on 5th April 2019 which included visiting many ambassador businesses, hotels and entertainment venues, as well as a boat trip with Waterford City Marine Search & Rescue.

Waterford passed all 31 Purple Flag criteria as well as the minimum thresholds of decreasing crime statistics, providing appropriate transport, offering a vibrant appeal, a stimulating destination and a strong partnership.
