Waterford’s Viking Triangle enjoyed fantastic success winning The Great Place category at the Urbanism Awards 2017 held in London earlier this week.
Waterford won against formidable contenders; Greenwich Market, London and Leicester Market, Leicester. The Viking Triangle is one of the oldest and most notable high quality urban districts in Ireland and has countless historic visitor attractions within. As described in a specially commissioned poem written for the winning entry, poet Ian McMillan encourages visitors to:
“Be bold and pretend you’re from the past as you visit Christchurch Cathedral and Reginald’s Tower, As history fans out from the Vikings”
