A new illustrated guide to Waterford’s City Walls and Towers has been produced by Waterford City and County Council with funding from the Irish Walled Towns Network Interpretation and Events Grants Scheme 2022.

Written and illustrated by Dave Pollock, the booklet proposes three walking routes – the compact tour, the medium tour and the grand tour – each taking in key sites in Waterford’s medieval defences.

Combining concise text, contemporary photographs and detailed reconstruction drawings, this guide will help visitors to recognise and understand Waterford’s impressive medieval monuments as they survive today, while also picturing what they looked like in medieval times.
