The Bar and Bench in Waterford Circuit Court last week paid glowing and warm tributes to Chief Court Clerk, Seamus McGrath, on his final day in court after working 38 years in the service.

Judge Rory MacCabe said it was a sad day for the court service in Waterford, saying goodbye to Mr McGrath who had done his utmost to make judges, solicitors, barristers and members of the public welcome in the courthouse.
