The Suir Valley, People, Places, traditional crafts and heritage.
This project was conducted by
fifth and sixth class. Each group had a specific topic to deal with.
When completed it should give the reader an insight to the life and times of people along the Valley from Poll an Fhírinne at the foot of the Devil's Bit until it empties into the sea at Waterford Harbour after converging with its twin Sisters the Nore and the Barrow.
In November 1999 we were divided into groups and assigned different tasks. Some projects were easy as source material was readily available. Others had to seek all the help they could from home, the Library, Heritage Centers, Bord Fáilte and any other source available. Others had to compile questionnaires and ask local people. The Internet was another source for the Viking influence. This Project will be ongoing and may be added to as information becomes available.
