Bad Times Book Launch


Bad Times Book Launch

Willie Fraher new book The Bad Times, Waterford Country Houses During the Revolutionary Period was launched last Saturday in the Garden Room at Woodhouse Easte courtesy of Jim and Sally Thompson. The garden looked splendid in the winter sunshine. Amongst the attendees were Joanne Rothwell, Waterford City & Co Archivist, Bernadette Guest, City & County Heritage Officer, members of the Centenary Committee, Trustees of Waterford County Museum, Kevin Hurley, President of the Cork branch of the Irish Georgian Society, and a number of owners of the houses featured in the book.

The official opening was performed by Cllr Joe Kelly, Mayor of Waterford City & County. He praised the author for this work as curator of the county museum and for this book which gave a different insight into this turbulent period in our history. The author then spoke and thanked those who gave him access to documents and photographs. In particular, he thanked well-known historian Julain Walton, and Stradbally historian Cian Flaherty for their invaluable assistance.

When the formal proceedings concluded guests were provided with refreshments organised by events manager Jennifer Reeve and her staff. Thanks to museum staff, Paulus, Marie, and Tony, for looking after the book sales.
