How often do we pass a building and wonder at the history behind its door. As you walk through the streets of Waterford you will notice round blue plaques with inscriptions. These descriptions tell us of events or people connected with Waterford and the building/place you are passing by.

Waterford Civic Trust has installed 44 Blue Plaques throughout the city to commemorate links between a particular location, a famous person or event. Waterford has a rich and diverse heritage which can be viewed through the blue plaques, individually or by following all or part of the Blue Plaque Trail. New blue plaques to be erected this year to Thomas Mackesy and Richard Ryland.

If you have a suggestion regarding a person, event or location that you think should be commemorated, please email
