Waterford was well-represented at the Travel Extra Travel Journalist of the Year Awards in Dublin last week, with Mark Graham winning the Travel Book Award for his book A Year of Festivals in Ireland and Conor Power of the Sunday Independent taking the Shortbreak Award for his article on French medieval theme park Puy de Fou.

The awards ceremony was organised to coincide with the annual Holiday World Show at the RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin recently and held Thomas Prior House, Ballsbridge.

The award winners were chosen by a distinguished panel of senior Irish journalists. This year saw a huge increase in the number of submissions from previous years, the judges said, ‘displaying the creativity and continuing innovation of travel and tourism journalism in Ireland’.
