There are numerous spectacular examples of religious architecture dotted all over the world, and Waterford is no exception. Cathedrals and churches have played important roles in this county for over 1000 years, and represent some of the oldest structures in the county. Many historical events have taken place within the walls of some these structures in the last millennium, and although many may have fallen and been rebuilt in that time, they play an enormous role in Waterford’s history.
