Reply To: Irelands Ten Worst Roundabouts
I just presumed given the excellent natural harbour that is Cork that the Vikings would have established a settlement there.
But back to Waterford, it really saddens me that when such an important discovery is made that it is not a case of real celebration. I appreciate that the situation in Waterford city is far from Ideal and that the N25 is one of the most strategic roads in the country. But a find of this quality is extremely rare, it has been stated that the only comparible site in Europe receives 2m+ visitors a year. If 20% of this number were to be attracted to Waterford it would provide a major boost to the local economy.
It is time to get out the CPO agents to reroute this by a couple of hundred metres, it is possible to have a road and an extremely attractive canidate for a world heritage site.
