Waterford Castle Fireworks

    Hi Waterford,
    Does anyone else know what the story is with people letting off or having fireworks displays near the dunmore road? I thought initially it may be as part of a weddings in Waterford Castle but twice in the last month on they have been on Sunday nights around 10pm usually lasting 10-15 minutes?
    My issue is that on the two most recent occasions it has set every dog within earshot off who all start barking which has in turn then woken up my baby son roaring?

    Can any one confirm if it's the castle who's letting off the fireworks?
    Does anyone know what the regulations on them having such displays, noise pollution, event permission etc?

    I'm just trying to get my facts straight before I write a letter asking for clarification from them on it

    You sure it isn't the usual scrotes just setting off fireworks at random (albeit in a burst)? It's been happening on and off for weeks as per usual at this time of year.

    I just presumed it was the castle because as was said above it seems to be at ten o clock on weekend nights.
    In saying that I was walking dog the other night and gang of shìts throw a banger on the road. Never mind the dog but I nearly shìt myself. !!!
    If it is castle doesn't really bother me because it's over in ten minutes

    No @harrypalmr this is definitely more sustained than kids letting them off.
    As the next poster said usually at weekend and normally I wouldn't give a monkeys but just with a baby in the house the ante is upped.
    Just hoping to get details so I can aske them if they have planned dates for these things

    I suppose wedding parties are an important earner and that would be weekend based, though I associate Saturday as the wedding day.

    I heard them there last night (from Viewmount) and they're definitely not just youngfellas out on the green letting off bangers. You could hear the rapid fire of the launcher, so it's definitely some sort of professional, computer-controlled setup. I couldn't see them from my location, but Waterford Castle would be consistent with the direction the noise was coming from.

    Same here. Can never see them though from my house. Surely some on here has seen them

    They went off on two successive Thursdays last month also.

    I know that some of them are coming from Farran Park and have been since September!

    Happening all over the country since the ploughing championships I believe. Every kid that went up there bought all they could afford.
