Very Busy Week For Waterford County Museum

Fund Raising Event A Huge Success

On Wednesday last 21st November the premier of "Days of Our Youth!" by Muiris O'Keeffe was staged at Dungarvan Town Hall Theatre.

Dungarvan Dramatic Club, to whom we are very grateful, kindly donated the takings from the first night of the four night event to the Museum. The fund raiser was a great success as the theatre was filled to capacity. An enjoyable night was had by all. We greatly appreciate the wonderful support of all who attended.


On Saturday afternoon 24th November, a large crowd attended a host of talks by Ivan Lennon and Dr Pat McCarthy.
