      Waterford Details

      Waterford carries the distinction of being known by the name given it by its ancient Viking founders, Vedrafjord, the Norse version of the modern name. The city is also home to Reginald's Tower. Reginald's Tower is the oldest civic building in Ireland and its name, as well, was given to it by the Vikings. Waterford, predictably, owes much of its longevity to its being a port. The River Suir is the most important economic feature of the town. The river is home to the Waterford Port. This port has been in service for over 1,000 years, in various incarnations.
