Booze, Blaas N' Banter To Celebrate City's Quayside And Maritime Heritage

The Imagine Festival's "History and Heritage Day" will once again begin with a bang in the renowned quayside tavern known as Jordan's at the event, "Booze, Blaas n'Banter".

A homage to the early house dockside tavern and to all those who lived, worked and played along the majestic river Suir and Waterford's coast, the event starts at 9am and runs until noon.

Of course the day starts with a Blaa or, for those not in the know, a kind of floury bap that is indigenous to Waterford and goes down well with lots of butter and cup of tea.

The Waterford Council of Trade Unions [WCTU] event is held in conjunction with the Imagine Arts Festival and Jordan's Bar.

The MC for this event is local journalist, author, songwriter and actor, Ciaran Murphy.

The morning of short local history will include talks, music, poetry, slow pints, blaas and craic.

In light of the recent city and county local authority amalgamation, the talks will this year involve a series of short labour and social history presentations from the county.
