Even today locals keep their Viking past very close to their heart. Stand on the edge of the River Suir looking over merchants quay, and Waterford’s lowrise skyline presents an impressive façade of the city’s past. Tall, brightly coloured 19th century buildings front the quays. A church spire peaks its head up, and the hulk of the early 13th century Reginald’s Tower Ireland’s oldest civic urban monument reminds you that this is a city with a strong sense of history.  The mysterious Blaa blaa of course it’s not just the architecture that speaks of the past, the Waterford “blaa” – a bread roll peculiar to the city – is believed to have been introduced by the Hugenots in the 17th century. All around Waterford  breakfast tables,  builders lunches and picnic baskets are bulging with blaas.  Their are no strangers here, only friends that have not met….W.B.
