The Finnerty family say hello to friends in Newtown Waterford city while out and about getting some exercise within their 2km during lockdown.

Proudly supported by Waterford Council and the Waterford News & Star


WATERFORD people have been absolutely fantastic in our collective response to the measures we have all had to take to protect the public by delaying the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Thousands of people have been cocooning and haven’t left their homes in five or more weeks. The rest of us have had a great opportunity to discover and share our 2km of the stunning natural landscape of Waterford City and County.

Waterford Council, in partnership with the Waterford News & Star, teamed up to ask you to take and share your photographs of #MyWaterford2Km with all of us in Waterford – in this week’s print edition of the News & Star we feature some of the great photos you sent in celebrating the Déise!

Cathy Breen took this picture on her walk with Susie the dog within their 2km near Ballyvooney Cove, Stradbally.

These pictures capture so many facets of what Waterford means to us and what is so special on our Déise doorstep, within 2km… people, objects, historic places, landscapes. For even more fantastic Waterford images check out #MyWaterford2km on social media.

Meanwhile, let’s keep this feelgood Waterford photo project going as the restrictions are extended to 5km! Just tag Waterford Council and Waterford News & Star and use the hashtag #MyWaterford5Km or email your photos to [email protected]
