    Hi, I am viewing a property in Waterford on Thomas Street this week.
    I wonder if anyone with local knowledge can give me some background on the immediate area.

    I understand it is on street parking, can I get a resident parking for this street?
    Are cars generally safe in the area when parked on the street?
    Is it generally safe for a girl walking home at night?

    I see it is very close to lots of amenities shopping, pubs etc, just a little unsure of security.
    Any other local feedback would be appreciaterd

    Thank you

    As I understand it, yes, but check with the council.

    Not aware of any specific problems, but it's a secondary street just outside the city centre - you could be unlucky.

    As a man, I'm not really qualified to answer that question! :pac:

    See previous answer... and you should probably take a look around the area after hours to see how you feel about it. I'm sure you're a big girl and would know all the common-sense precautions to take.

    My own take on it is that people are a little nervous about all the big Eastern European lads living in that part of town. But a lot of the Eastern Europeans are living there in families or as couples, so I feel it's safer there than it looks. I did hear a tale (not sure how true) about some local scumbag attacking someone and getting taken to task by a number of big Polish lads from nearby apartments. Make of that what you will, and good luck!

    Thank you all for your responses. I walked the street and spoke to some locals, all seemed fine, so I am happy to give it a go.

    Thank you all again
