If Waterford is the start and Kilmacthomas is the heart, then Dungarvan is the home of the Waterford Greenway!
When Mai O’Higgins penned ‘Dungarvan My Hometown’ in 1959, it may have been the Waterford Hurlers she was acknowledging, but we’re hopeful the phrase will be on the lips of all who come to cycle and walk our beautiful new Greenway. The word ‘home’ conjures images of warmth, familiarity, welcome, chat and comfort – not so much a building, as a feeling. We hope everyone using the Waterford Greenway will feel that way about their time in Dungarvan.
The last few months has seen a huge increase in visitors to Dungarvan, as people choose to use our town as a base for their Greenway adventure. This has become a great source of civic pride for all of us and everyone is working hard to ensure a warm welcome, brilliant hospitality and a great experience for all our visitors.
To celebrate this, the Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber have commissioned car bumper stickers for distribution to Greenway users as a memento of their time in our wonderful town. We hope to see these bumper stickers travel all over Ireland and the world, as people who have enjoyed their time here in Dungarvan return home to share their experience.
The stickers are now available through the Dungarvan Tourist Office, bike rental companies and accommodation providers so we hope everyone will get behind this campaign and help spread the word about ‘Dungarvan – Home of the Greenway.’
