Wonder Wander Walking Trails

The launch of the Wonder Wander Walking Trails  for Cappoquin and Waterford City  will take place on  the  22nd of April  .

The National Inventory of Architectural Heritage has produced 2 Wonder Wander Walking Trails in association with   Waterford City and County Council.  Rose Ryall Conservation Officer has said that the aim of these trails is to celebrate a sense of place by exploring the rich and diverse heritage of the Architectural Conservation Areas (ACA)   in  the  historic cores of Cappoquin and   Waterford City .As part of the project, community workshops and drop-in information sessions were held to facilitate discussion, storytelling, and interpretation. Engaging with local schools was particularly rewarding, enriching both the trail maps as well as raising public awareness of our built heritage.

Malcolm Noonan TD, Minister of State for Heritage and Electoral Reform at the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage will attend the launch of the Cappoquin Trail by the Deputy Mayor of Waterford City and County Cllr. Declan Doocey . This will be held at  at 10 am in Cappoquin  Community Centre  .

In Waterford,  the Mayor  of City Waterford City and County  Cllr  Joe Conway   will launch the Waterford Trial  at the  Central Library Waterford at 1pm. Both events will be  followed by the opportunity to do some of the trail afterwards    

 All are welcome! 

The maps will be available to download on the NIAH website from the launch date and some paper copies will be available on the day.
