    I must express my greatest admiration for the senior Waterford hurling panel for the great game today and the drawn game last week.

    Those were the two best games of hurling I have seen from the Waterford team.

    So great credit to the players and the management.
    They made me proud to be from Waterford.

    Pretty much what I intended to post on this thread. Very disappointed getting home last night at midnight and getting up this morning knowing our season was over, but I've so much pride in our wonderful young hurlers who almost did it against the "Empire" of hurling. Our year will come, no doubt about it now.

    I've done a lot of giving out this year about the negative style of play, the dour brand of hurling, but the last two games have been some of the best I can remember from a Waterford team, probably the best in fact.

    Very proud of the team and I hope they go on from this and it drives them to improve and do better next year.

    My take on this is a little different.

    Has this year really been a success for Waterford?

    Couldn't get over the line in a league final and lost a replay.

    Got annihilated in a Munster Final.

    Failed to put Kilkenny away in the first game before losing a replay. All Ireland winning teams don't miss the chances Waterford missed to go 4 points up with 5 minutes to go, in the first game. It's not unlucky, it was lack of composure.

    The mayor of Waterford wants to give the Waterford team a civic reception for losing an All Ireland Semi Final. That's laughable. Accepting and celebrating failure. There's a reason why Liam McCarthy hasn't been in Waterford in a long long time.

    Thankfully not everyone's appreciation is dependent on results. ;)

    I see the Marina Hotel has applied for planning permission for an additional two floors. That's a big vote of confidence in the city.

    He's right though! Celebrating mediocrity again in this city.

    The Hurlers don't get paid. They put in huge effort for very little return.

    Their efforts should be recognised, not just the Waterford Hurlers and not just the all Ireland champs but all intercounty Hurlers.

    What a silly comment from a consistent source of them,I would love to know what field you excelled in, however civic reception when we didn't win any gaa trophy ain't gonna be welcomed by anyone involved.fair enough if u21 lads manage it.

    While on the sports, congrats to Thomas Barr for reaching the Olympic final by winning his heat in great style. :D

    Congrats to the U21 hurlers for a fantastic win against Galway today, and to all concerned with the team.

    What a great bunch of lads!

    Congrats to the organisers of Harvest. They packed a hell of a lot into that programme and the city looked great.

    Yep. They have taken some stick in recent years, but really enjoyed it in there today, loads going on.

    Also the homecoming down in the park for the under 21s was really well done. A great weekend overall for the deise

    Irish Rail Staff - Waterford Plunkett

    Just want to appreciate the helpful staff at Waterford Railway Station. Have been using trains quite a bit lately and the staff at Waterford are by far the most helpful and professional of anywhere I've been. Also the floral displays for the 1916 commemoration were epic. Big thank you and well done to all involved.

    Just want to give credit to a guy called Alex in the hand car wash behind the TOP garage on the Park Road.

    I got a puncture and the wheel refused to come off. When he saw I was struggling, he sprayed some solution on the disk to cool/contract it, then gave it a few kicks to get it off. He allowed me the use of his facilities to wash my hands afterwards.

    Nice guy, and I'd urge all of you to give him some of your business.

    Credit to hilary O'Neill and others for organising march, she's well able to give a rousing speech too...keep it up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 606 ✭✭✭ Fishy1


    Just wanted to say well done to all involved in getting the GIY Centre built on the Outer Ring Road (near junction with the Dunmore Road). It's a fantastic facility, and hopefully will encourage lots of people to try growing a few veggies in their back gardens.

    The café opened on Wednesday & lots of the food on the menu has been grown on the site. It's a lovely, bright space & is only a short walk from WUH. They also plan on running cookery & gardening classes there.

    I think it's a great feather in the cap for Waterford, something to be very proud of :)
