Take a trip down memory lane with My Waterford on WLR

Waterford Has A Rich History..

So each day over the next few months on WLR, local historian Dermot Power will bring you down memory lane with stories from Waterford's recent past (1960-1990s).

My Waterford is a series that will look at the history of Waterford including The Old Crystal, musicians, Tramore Atlantic Ballroom (where love stories began!), Woolworths, dance halls, old industrial factories, fishing and will give you an insight into iconic people from the Déise.

We’ll share your stories and the stories of our parents with the world on air, online and on social over the next few months.

My Waterford is brought to you by Coffee House Lane, award winning artisan coffee, hand roasted in Waterford.
