WATERFORD VOLUNTEERS: Does anyone know anything of a group called the "Waterford Volunteers". I came across a referenced to it in the log of HMS Hawke noting the arrival of a contingent of new recruits that it called the Waterford Volunteers. My great grandfather joined the Royal Navy in 1859 as part of this group. They gathered in Waterford and were transported to Queenstown (Cork) on HMS Magpie on 15 May 1859 where they were embarked on HMS Hawke and signed up with the navy. I have not been able to find any other reference to Waterford Volunteers in any other document. I would be immensely grateful for any leads others may have about this group.
While this may well bore many people to tears (ironically enough), the revisiting of Charles Stewart Parnell's heyday during the Brexit brouhaha in the House of Commons this week prompted me to finish a piece about Joe Biggar: a political eccentric who came to own Butlerstown Castle towards the tail end of his career. The Belfast native was Parnell's right-hand man, with "the leprechaun" (as he was dubbed by Tory prime minister Benjamin Disraeli) standing tall as the Irish Parliamentary Party's filibusterer-in-chief during the 1870s and '80s; an era when obstructionism was used to stymie government and focus attention on the Home Rule/Nationalist cause. He was proudly known as one of the greatest time-wasters ever to set foot in Westminster. An abiding friend and ally of C.S., the "uncrowned king of Ireland", Biggar inherited Butlerstown Castle from his relation Samuel Ferguson and spent the last three summers of his life there.

An exploratory meeting was held in the Granville Hotel on Tuesday 22nd January 2019 to explore how the very early history of East Waterford (with special attention, giving to the Creadan area, in light of the many, very early rare finds found), can be fostered and advanced for the benefit of Waterford’s early unrecorded history . The meeting was low key and by invite, to put the project in motion. Discussed were the following: 1/ Brief update on the findings included; Visit of Professor Stan Green ,Feasibility Study, 2,800 year antler pick, Dr Mattew Parkes opinion regarding the very rare Fossil Stone found at Creadan and the Flint tool picked up by a trawler off Hook head. 2/Setting up of an advisory board 3/Completion of recording the finds from East Waterford 4/Protection of sites 5/Public information night 6/ Proposals going forward. The meeting was informed by Noel Mc Donagh of all updates and finds. It was agreed that a small working group would be set up to put the advisory board in place. Joy Rooney, kindly offered to come back with how best the working group may proceed. A time scale of two weeks was giving for the completion of the working group and a further four weeks for the advisory board to be put in place. The working group would also look at the best way to protect the bronze age site and also they would, work with The Barony of Gaultier Historical Society and Waterford Archaeological and historical Society to select a venue and date for the public information talk covering the findings and related disclosures. Anyone who feels that they may have a contribution to make, can contact Noel Mc Donagh at [email protected].
Looking into Creadan's past over 300 million years ago
Today Santa called in the form of an email from Professor Nicky Milner a person whos work I have followed for many years. For those who do not know Professor Nicky Milner..Professor Nicky Milner is an archaeologist and deputy Head of the Archaeology Department at the University of York. She was elected a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London in 2009. Her research focuses on the Mesolithic period, and the transition between the Mesolithic and Neolithic. She has worked at the iconic site of Star Carr in the Vale of Pickering for over 15 years, and has directed excavations at the site since 2004. Nicky completed a BA in Archaeology in Nottingham in 1995 and a NERC funded PhD in Cambridge in 1998, which developed a method to analyse seasonality information from the European oyster, which was then applied to Danish shell midden sites. This was followed by a Sir James Knott fellowship at the University of Newcastle in 1999 and then a Lectureship in 2001, before moving to the University of York in 2004. She became a Senior Lecturer in 2009 and Professor in 2012. Her research focuses on the Mesolithic period and the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition and she currently runs the project POSTGLACIAL. She has worked on shell midden sites in Denmark, Ireland, Scotland, Spain and Portugal and has co-directed excavations at Howick, Baylet, Star Carr and Flixton Island. A very special person indeed.
The Waterford Women’s Centre history group has nominated the Waterford Cockle Women for a Civic Trust blue plaque in March 2019. As far back as 1901 the census reveals Waterford women who considered their principle occupation to be cockle pickers and sellers. However there is anecdotal evidence that there were cockle sellers in Waterford in the 1870’s and probably longer. In the 1911 census 20 women from Waterford city and county listed ‘cockle picker’ as their occupation. Many of these women were either single or widowed and this occupation was their sole means of providing for their families. Some were married and cockle picking/selling supplemented the income of their husbands. It was hard work for little pay and also dangerous as the tide could trap them and sometimes did. Under the Towns Improvement Act in 1926, the fish market in the city was moved from Michael Street to Peter Street, and many of the cockle women were before the court for blocking the passages selling their cockles. In one such case a women from Waterford in defence of the women who was being charged, said that Peter Street had been used by cockle women since the 1870’s and should not be now moved on to make it a fish market. She had sold cockles there, she said, since she was a child. She was then 64. The women were prosecuted for this same offence over a two year period. The solicitor defended them by pointing out their poverty and hard work and the fact that many of them travelled a 16 mile round trip to Tramore and elsewhere to pick the cockles. Ref; Breda Murphy
Over the past years I have rescued a number of bones from the sea at Creadan, close to where I found the Fulacht Fia . To understand better the area I had a feasibility study done to find out more about the bones and area. The report came in that the bones had no historic value, fine , this year I gave one of the bones to specialists over here from the USA to be carbon dated ,this week I got the results the bone was 2,800 years old dating to the building of the Fulacht Fia. It was a pick and was most lightly used in preparing the ground. I make this point to highlight the fact that we should not take as the bible everything we are told even if they are experts.

Caution: I do hereby caution the public against giving credit to my wife, Julia Nugent, other-wise Power, on my accounts as I am determined not to pay any debts she may contract after this notice.

Going through some of my history documents today I came across a booklet called “ The Irish Educational Review dated June 1909 priced 6p. The interesting thing from a Waterford perspective was an article by a W.C.Foley Ferrybank N.S Waterford on the advantages of the metric system. Such a forward thinking person of his time I looked to see if I could find out more about this special person. I did get a photo Studio photo of Mr Foley. I wonder if this person was ever recognized for his forward thinking? I looked in Google but found nothing only moraines arguing about boundaries . I would like to give this booklet to a living relation if they have not got one. Further info: William Canice Foley who was a teacher.and, the grandfather of Irish Times Journalist and author Donal Foley whose father Dan was also a teacher." A comment from a Margaret Kearns Hi. i'm Philip Foley, a great grandson of William Foley. Looking at the photos above I can see a strong resemblance to my own father and my nephew David Foley. My father is Tom Foley. His father was Dan Foley, Labour candidate. Dan Foley was also the Principal of Ferrybank National School. He died in his forties when my father was aged about 8. I was intrigued to see the names of my father’s uncles and aunts in the census.

May Pole, Co. Waterford (27th of April 1909)

Here’s a treat for you - some images taken on the 27th of April 1909 in Co. Waterford. Although the May Bush tradition was most popular in Ireland, the May Pole tradition was also practiced too and this is related to the wider May Pole tradition found in Wales, England and across many northern European countries.

These images were taken for a Mr. Knight and feature in the Poole Collection which is now in the National Library. There were 3 images taken and I’ve included them and zoomed some detail which caught my eye such as the boys in the dresses/smock tops and the girls with the flowers in their hair.

I will share some film footage of this tradition in the next few days but in the meantime enjoy these and as always please like folklore.ie and The Wexford May Bush Festival for more material like this.
