Abhainn - An tSiúir,The River Suir, RTÉ, Travel,History,Scenery,Ireland


Rivers are more than just a geographical feature in our landscapes - for thousands of years rivers have been part of who we are and what we have become. Rivers have taken on magical, religious, mythical qualities in ancient times. They've been the major transportation routes of old, which opened up the country to newcomers both welcome and unwelcome - they're the motorway network of ancient times. As natural barriers rivers are and have traditionally marked the borders of tribal territories - often fiercely defended. River crossings have been the venue for many a battle. In later centuries the energy of our rivers have been captured by watermills and hydro electric plants but this intrisic life force and energy has always been recognised in ancient Irish cultures for whom the rivers were living goddesses.
RTÉ Cláracha Gaeilge explores Irish rivers from source to sea. ABHAINN takes us on a journey revealing the unique personality of each river and the stories both ancient and new that tell us who we really are.
========================================­====================================


From humble beginnings in the Devil's Bit Mountains in Tipperary, the River Suir flows gracefully through some of Munster's most beautiful countryside until it empties itself into the sea at Waterford Harbour. At 114 miles long from source to sea, the Suir is one of Ireland's longest and greatest rivers.
Abhainn: An tSiúir takes us on a memorable journey along the course of this most varied of Irish rivers.
The River Suir begins as little more than a babbling brook but as it flows downhill, it gathers pace and character. For a time, it manages to hide itself through deep foliage such as that at Garret's Mill Bridge, but it's not long before it displays its beauty as it makes its way through Thurles, Holycross, Cahir, Clonmel, Carrick-on-Suir and Waterford City.
The River Suir has been an active witness to all stages of Irish history. Early settlers used it for transport and food, while later visitors such as the Vikings and the Normans used it as their commonest point of entry into Ireland. Strongbow, Gráinne Mhaol, King John and Cromwell have all crossed its famous banks, so it's no surprise that the course of the river is studded with ruined castles, towers and great houses.
But it's not all about history. The river is colonised by a wide variety of bird life and it is still used by many people for various types of recreation.
Abhainn introduces us to some of the rivers great characters past and present. We meet "Crimean Bob", a horse that survived the Charge of the Light Brigade and the Battle of Balaklava. Bob was so loved by his masters in Cahir that they buried him under the local Army Barracks after his long retirement from battle had ended.
In Clonmel, Shay Hurley tells us of the unusual history of the local Working Men's Boat Club and its part in the War of Independence, while we also learn of Waterford's unique contribution to Irish cuisine. Not only was the rasher and the cream cracker invented there, but Waterford's Huguenots introduced a new kind of breakfast bread, the Blaa. Today, this centuries old tradition is kept alive by the Walsh brothers in the Déise's capital.
This programme was filmed by the river banks and from every kind of boat. It also features stunning helicopter footage.

Places of interest in Waterford

The Three Sisters
A view from The Quays: "The Three Sisters" mix near the city before flowing into the harbour.

The old city of Waterford consists of various cultural quarters. The oldest is what has been referred to as the Viking triangle. This is the part of the city surrounded by the original 10th century fortifications, which is triangular in shape with its apex at Reginald's tower. Though this was once the site of a thriving Viking city, the city centre has shifted to the west over the years, and it is now a quiet and tranquil area, dominated by narrow streets, medieval architecture, and civic spaces. Over the past decade, a number of restaurants have opened in High Street and Henrietta Street, taking advantage of the charming character of the area. Much of Waterford's impressive architecture is to be found in the Viking triangle.

In the 15th century, the city was enlarged with the building of an outer wall on the west side. Today Waterford retains more of its city walls than any other city in Ireland with the exception of Derry, whose walls were built much later. Tours of Waterford's city walls are conducted daily.

The Quay, once termed by historian Mark Girouard 'the noblest quay in Europe', is a mile long from Grattan Quay to Adelphi Quay, though Adelphi Quay is now a residential area. It is still a major focal point for Waterford, commercially and socially, and the face that Waterford presents to those traveling into the city from the north. Near Reginald's Tower is the William Vincent Wallace Plaza, a monument and amenity built around the time of the millennium that commemorates the Waterford born composer.

John Roberts Square is a pedestrianised area that is one of the main focal points of Waterford's modern day commercial centre.

Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, Barronstrand Street, Waterford
Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, Barronstrand Street, Waterford

It was named after the city's most celebrated architect, John Roberts, and was formed from the junction of Barronstrand Street, Broad Street and George's Street. It is often referred to locally as Red Square, due to the red paving that was used when the area was first pedestrianised. A short distance to the east of John Roberts Square is Arundel Square, another square with a fine commercial tradition, which the City Square shopping centre opens onto.

Ballybricken, in the west, just outside the city walls, is thought to have been Waterford's Irishtown, a type of settlement that often formed outside Irish cities to house the Vikings and Irish that had been expelled during the Norman conquest of Ireland. Ballybricken is an inner city neighbourhood with a long tradition, centred around Ballybricken hill, which was a large, open market-square. Today it has been converted into a green, civic space, but the Bull Post, where livestock was once bought and sold, still stands as a remnant of the hill's past.

The Mall is a fine Georgian thoroughfare, built by the Wide Streets Commission in order to extend the city southwards. It contains some of the city's finest Georgian architecture. The People's Park, Waterford's largest and finest park, is located nearby.

Ferrybank in Co Kilkenny is Waterford city's only suburb north of the river. It contains a village centre of its own. Kilkenny Co Council have granted permission for a number of major retail developments in Ferrybank. One has been completed and the second is currently under construction and due to be completed in January 2009.

In April 2003 an important site combining a 5th century Iron Age and 9th century Viking settlement was discovered at Woodstown near the city, which appears to have been a Viking town that predates all such settlements in Ireland.
