The second panel in the Waterford One Hundred tapestry series was unveiled on Monday in the Mayor’s Parlour.
The project aims to create at least twenty-five panels depicting the history of Waterford, mainly created by Waterford people at home and abroad.
The first panel depicts the arrival of the Normans in Waterford, while the new one shows Waterford as the centre of trade in the Middle Ages.
This second panel’s creation was driven by Mary Allen, the president of the London branch of the Council of Irish Counties Association, and Ballyduff native.
The first stitches were put in by Mary and Ireland’s then-ambassador to the UK, Waterford man Dan Mulhall.
The tapestry is partly made by prisoners working for a charity.
Future panels will be created by Waterford people in Australia as well as Newfoundland.
