Here are some picture from the Waterford Medieval Museum that Eva, Sarah Ro, Anna, and myself went to today. The guided tour really gave a great perspective into how life was in Waterford and the various conflicts that happened during that time to do with the city. We also stopped by the Waterford Crystal retail store and looked on in envy at all of the beautiful crystal. Of course after our tour we made a trip to Blackfriars because no trip is complete to the city centre without a stop at Blackfriars. Today I had the Earl Grey Tea and like everything else, it was delicious. Tomorrow we will be heading to Dunmore East, a small town on the southern coast so I will probably be posting again rather shortly. Cheers!

These vestments are from the 1300's and are made from gold that has been turned into thread. Made for Catholic priests of Wateford and then buried for over 100 years when the British broke with the Pope and established the penal laws in Ireland. The following pictures do not even come close to giving justice to the beauty of the vestments.
