It is a constant source of fascination to me that that there are at least 50 Waterfords around the world. I was born in Co. Waterford in Ireland and live just 8 miles from the Waterford City which is the oldest city in the country.
Although I have been in contact with a number of the other Waterfords around the world, I haven't, as yet, visited any. However Waterford, CT is top of my list.
All this interest in Waterfords of the World started when my son was collecting old post cards of 'our' Waterford. One day an envelope arrived with a picture of a beach that looked remarkably like Woodstown Beach a few miles from where we live. However, there was the little matter of the CT marked after the Waterford. We studied it further and realised that it wasn't Woodstown but what seemed like its twin in Connecticut!
Thus, started a passion to find out about Waterford CT. While doing this, all sorts of other Waterfords started appearing and the count at present is at least 25 in the US and another 25 scattered all around the world.
How wonderful it would be to link up with all the Waterfords. Can you just imagine a gathering of people all talking about 'my Waterford?' That Waterford could be just about anywhere but I, for one, have no doubt that each of them has special meanings for their residents.
My Waterford in Ireland is very, very close to my heart. It is situated in the south-east of Ireland and has just about everything: beautiful coastline; mountains; the historic city of Waterford and a host of towns and villages as well as farmland and wild mountainous regions.
I would love to tell you more about Waterford, Ireland through this blog and bring you photographs. I would also love to get to know more about Waterford CT and what it means to you.
One difference between our Waterfords is the time. We are 5 hours ahead of you so it is just after 2am here!
Time to say 'goodnight' and look forward to hearing from you about your Waterford.
