About Us 


Waterford Civic Trust is a voluntary organisation whose pursuit is the enrichment, preservation, protection, promotion and improvement of our heritage in Waterford. We have taken as our mission statement 'Supporting Waterford's Rich and Diverse Heritage’.


The Trust is managed by a board of who are elected for a fixed term at our AGM. Directors do not receive any remuneration and all income is dedicated towards Trust overheads or heritage projects.


We have undertaken a number of projects since our foundation, the most significant being the restoration of the Beach Tower. We are also responsible for the blue plaques that commemorate great persons and achievements in Waterford. You may find out more about the work we have done and our plans by looking at the Projects section.


We are keen as Waterford Civic Trust to pursue our mission on heritage with your help and support. We welcome your views and engagement, so please contact us, volunteer or become a member. The enrichment and promotion of our heritage will benefit us all. We can already witness the great work that has been done in the Viking Triangle, our Museums, as well as the work in St. John’s Priory and on the City Walls.


We are grateful to our sponsors for the support that they give, and we would welcome further sponsorship for our overall mission, and, the future projects we are considering.
