When Stephanie got here she had a shopping list of gifts to take back, T-Shirts for the boys, treats for the grandkids, chocolate for the guys back at work (and for Steph!), and of course somethinig very special for a very special Mom. Steph's mum had asked for some Waterford Crystal. So what better place to go get some, the Waterford Crystal Factory. I had never been there before, but I would strongly reccomend anyone visiting the area to check it out. It's amazing watching the craftsmen working, the skill they possess is just fantastic.

Yes the Waterford Crystal Factory was a favorite stop when visiting Ireland. The beauty of the crystal is unrivaled. Beautiful workmanship with magnificent results.
And the display in the showroom is breathtaking and spectacular.
Great capture of this great art...Thanks for the memories

Love how you presented this Peter. Have done the tour a couple of times and always enjoy it.

Two All Ireland Final appearances and two wins :)) Pity it took 20 years but it was all the more brilliant after the long wait :)
