Oral History Project, Waterford City & County, Ireland.


From Tops of the Town to sitting by the fire at home playing tunes to gathering together in community halls to have a dance or see a film these recordings explore how Waterford people set out to enjoy themselves and their leisure time. Culture and entertainment brings people together, particularly, when it came to “courting” at the dances or cinema and bring people many happy memories. The changes in the way we spend our leisure time provides a fascinating social history of Waterford. There are some great stories here about some wonderful Waterford people having a fabulous time.
