Believe it or not part of the DMR could well have been renamed or popularly dubbed Tobacco Road back in the 30’s and 40’s of the last century. I came across this in a publication entitled ‘Reminiscences of Waterford’ where I read that the first plantation of Tobacco ever grown commercially in this country was sown by Messrs. Power and Co. at Glenville in the early thirties. Schoolboys of today at DelaSalle College may interested to learn that experimental plots of Tobacco were successfully grown there in 1932!
