Along the coastal cliff path to Tramore, an excellent walk, though all the way is quite long, best to go from Dunmore East to Portally (below) and return.

The ruin in the graveyard of Killea Church, part of the old town.

What was it? You get a commanding view of the River Suir estuary as it meets the sea.

Was it a fortified tower house?

The lower arch has been converted to a grotto.

 

Killea Church, a very traditional Irish catholic Church with its own quiet unassuming dignity.

 

The interior of Killea RC Church in Dunmore East. Open all day, not just for Sunday services.

 

St Andrew's Church in the newer town.

 

 

 

The golf course overlooks the River Suir as it widens into its estuary - so, even if you having a bad game of golf, at least the view is great!

 

Some old tower, looks of medieval origin and it is! This the remains of the old Norman Castle probably built around 1200 AD. About 1641 the village was in the ownership of Lord Power when it was retained as a Cromwellian settlement.

12b. Dunmore East Harbour and fishing/sailing boats etc., Co. Waterford

SCENES from IRELAND * County Waterford

In Smith's History of Waterford, the village is referred to as a prominent fishing port in 1745. The fishermen's homes were located in the lower village down by where the Strand Inn is now and the fishing boats launched from the Strand before the harbour was built - the original pier was built/finished ~1824-30. In the Spring the smaller fishing boats fish for salmon, mackerel, shrimp and lobster.

An important sea bird kittiwake nesting colony exists on the cliffs above Dunmore East Harbour.

 

The kittiwakes seem of a much more sublime character than the vicious larger gulls!
