Visit of Norwegian Ambassador to Museum

We were delighted to welcome the ambassador, Mari Skare and her colleagues to Waterford County Museum. They were accompanied by Bernadette Guest, Waterford City & County Heritage Officer.

The group were welcomed by Museum President Thomas Phelan, the curator William Fraher and by Chrissy Knight O’Connor. Chrissy gave a presentation on the award winning Gallowshill Community Archaeology project and the ongoing investigations into the Viking sites and place names in the Dungarvan area.

The ambassador was given a number of presentations, including local publications and a Viking goblet designed by Eamon Terry of Criostal Na Rinne. She was most impressed by the Gallowshill project and the commitment to carrying it through to excavation and a long-term plan.

The museum hopes to continue the links with Norway and carry out further investigations into our shared Viking Heritage.
