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.

Over the past week people cocooning have slowly begun to emerge for a much needed break from the house and a bit of exercise at a safe, social distance. Being curtailed in our travels has provided us with a great opportunity to explore, first our 2km and now 5km 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 #MyWaterford5Km this week with all of us in Waterford – here are some of the great photos you’ve sent in – and there are loads more in this week’s Waterford News & Star print edition!


Laura Walsh Kett captured the Bank holiday Monday sunrise and some early morning gymnasts at Stradbally.


These pictures capture so many facets of what Waterford means to us and what is so special on our Déise doorstep, within our 5km… people, objects, historic places, landscapes. For even more fantastic Waterford images check out #MyWaterford2km and #MyWaterford5km on social media.

Thanks to everyone who joined in this feelgood Waterford photo project! Continue to share your 5km images on social media – and don’t forget to tag Waterford Council and Waterford News & Star and use the hashtag #MyWaterford5Km so that we can all enjoy them!
