Free Downloadable Waterford History Books

The following books about Waterford History are available to download free of charge. They are all of interest, particularly Charles Smith's book. It should be kept in mind that the books are products of their time. Some of the historical conclusions or facts may have been overtaken by current research. This is particularly true where the authors deal with pre-history. P M Egan's book is quite well known for containing inaccuracies but it is still a part of the canon of Waterford historical literature.
