London Calling for Unlucky Deisemen

London, victorious in Carriganore last year, are seeking a third successive NFL win over Waterford this Sunday.								| Photo: Noel Browne
Waterford’s senior footballers make the trip across the Irish Sea this Sunday to take on the Exiles of London in the penultimate round of games in this year’s National Football League. The year has so far been a decidedly mixed one for the Deisemen. [...]

Deise’s Instant Return

Waterford’s Brian O’Halloran and Wexford’s Brian Moore tussle for possession at Wexford Park on Sunday last.						| Photos: Noel Browne
Well how about that? A set of fixtures that looked decidedly difficult at the outset didn’t prove nearly as insurmountable as some of the winter soothsayers had predicted. Four wins and one draw means an instant return to Division 1A for the hurlers of Waterford, and no-one can [...]

Waterford Land Prices Rose By 20% in 2014

The average price per acre sold in Waterford during 2014 came to €10,587.
Agricultural land in County Waterford rose by 20 per cent during 2014 according to the latest Irish Farmer’s Journal Land Report. The increase in prices in Waterford reflected what was “a record year” for such sales since the Journal published its first such report eight years [...]

Blitzed By The Banner

Clare’s Evan Courtney peels away from Waterford’s Conor Walsh during last Wednesday’s Munster Under-21 Quarter-Final at Miltown Malbay. 		 | Photo: With thanks to the Clare People
Another one of those nights for Waterford Under-21 football. In a town synonymous with music, Ger Power’s well-prepared side sadly didn’t find the tune they needed as a powerful Clare side led them a merry dance during a disappointingly one-sided contest. The first half saw the [...]

Last Minute Agony For Gutted Deisemen

Waterford’s Michael Curry sees his shot blocked by Antrim’s Sean McVeigh.
Another two-point defeat, the third in this League campaign alone. Another one that got away. Another frustrating reversal for the footballers of Waterford. Another disappointing day in this most troublesome and tricky of divisions. That Waterford played with guts and commitment can be unquestioned by the small [...]

All Too Easy As Wexford Await

Antrim’s Ciaran Johnson being pursued by Waterford’s Colin Dunford.
Sunday’s all too easy victory over Antrim was a reminder of the importance of Waterford earning an immediate return to Division 1A hurling. A 32-point victory is not something that too many Deise fans will be crowing about this week, even though a third successive League win [...]

President  Higgins and his wife Sabina being told about the story of the Mermaid Tile by Rev Dr John Parkin (Director, St Patrick’s Gateway Centre) and Joe Stokes (Chairperson, St Patrick’s Gateway Company).

The Methodist Church is now used not only for a church but for concerts, community gathering and classes.

Deise Edge Out Rebels In Mardyke

Beth Carton, who struck 1-3 for Waterford in their National League win over Cork on Sunday.
Waterford’s Intermediate Camogie team secured their second consecutive victory of the National League campaign with a 1-9 to 1-8 victory over Cork in the Mardyke on Sunday. Playing against a slight breeze in the first-half, Waterford made a quick start and good inter-play between Lorraine Bray and Valerie O’Brien set up Trish Jackman for the opening [...]

Time For A Giant Leap

Band of brothers: Waterford’s footballers are seeking a first Munster Under-21 Championship win since 2006.							| Photos: Noel Browne
While the scheduling of Wednesday night’s match in Miltown Malbay is, from a Waterford perspective, as questionable as it is entirely legitimate from a Clare viewpoint, one senses a motivated group has just been given a little more cause. An entirely reasonable request to have [...]
