Where’s the best burger in Waterford? Who’s the best barber? Where’s the best coffee shop? The best beach? We want YOU to decide!
Let’s face it, we all have our favourite things about Waterford, from walking the beach in Tramore, to enjoying a great ice-cream in Dungarvan or having an ice cold pint in Geoff’s. Now, each week on the Big Breakfast Blaa, we’ll be asking you to nominate your favourite things.
The list is endless, but, all these things are what make Waterford so special, so for the next few weeks, we’ll be putting the spotlight on the ‘Best of Waterford’. The winners will each receive a coveted ‘Best of Waterford’ certificate.
How It Works
Each day on The Big Breakfast Blaa, Ollie & Mary will open the votes for a different category (best barber, best place to swim, best taxi driver, best gym… the list goes on!) and they’ll be asking you for your nominations/votes. The person/place/thing with the most nominations/votes will be announced before the end of the show that day, and the winner will receive their personalised ‘Best of Waterford’ certificate.
