A lovely Poole photograph showing the pier at Tramore as seen from the cliffs above. Obviously a day of celebration with lots of people both on the cliffs and on the pier and boating activity galore on the water.

It's Christmas and both the staff at the National Library and the Marys would like to wish all our viewers and contributors a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We would like to thank you for all the work, the fun and the pleasure of your company throughout the year and look forward to even more enjoyment in 2022. Nollaig shona daoibh go leir!

    Merry Christmas All ... 🎄🎅🎄🎄🎅🎄🎅🎄🎅🎄🎅🎄🎅🎄🎅🎄🎅🎄🎅🎄🎅🎅 Mr French / Lawrence was there too on a busy day - maybe a regatta? Looks later than Mr Poole due to the hats - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000316089 EDIT - there is a poster on the concrete slab above the nearby steps with "Tramore Regatta" and an illegible(?) date. See megazoom.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] You deserve a pierage for that! " ... In 1904, P.J. Power managed to cobble together funds for the project, with the help of Waterford County Council: Martin J. Murphy was involved in the campaign. Work began in 1905, and the nearly-complete pier was inaugurated – appropriately by P.J. Power – in 1907. But, by then, it was probably too late to recover Tramore's fishing trade. At a county council sub-committee meeting earlier in 1907, the piers at Ardmore and Tramore were both condemned as "absolutely useless" for commercial fishing and "only used for yachts and visitors which came to these places in the summer time". (It should be made clear that the term "pier" in Ireland generally referred to a stone and concrete breakwater, not – as in England – to a cast-iron and timber pleasure facility.) ... " From - www.gedmartin.net/martinalia-mainmenu-3/292-a-man-among-m... ("Find on Page" pier) Local press will have an exact date and details. Maybe the Lawrence is the same day? Maybe Mr French and Mr Poole met and compared their tripods? {Edit} NOT the same day; the railway and stones are not there

    Nadolig llawen to everyone, from across the sea. Meanwhile, sound the "unsporting habit" and "endless unpleasantness" klaxxxxons

    TRAMORE PIER. A Tramore resident this week told me of a rather unsporting habit which men bathers in the Pier have taken to. Instead of doing their sun-bathing at their side of the Pier, they go out to the breakwater to do it, much to the inconvenience of the ladies who have hitherto used the breakwater side for dressing. This is the sort of thing which leads to endless unpleasantness and I hope that next year some regulation will be made which will effectually stop this objectionable practice. After all the men have plenty of room on their own side of the Pier.

    on 28th September 1907 the Waterford Standard reported that unlike other papers it hadn't been sent an invitation to cover the official opening of the pier, which had taken place on the previous Tuesday. But the same paper had reported on the Tramore Regatta in its 24th August 1907 edition. This was "Practically for the first time the new pier was brought into use, for in addition to the basin being used for the swimming events, a large number of people interested in the sailing and rowing races used the pier as a point of 'vantage for their observations.
