A memorial to Irish born, Father Mychal Judge, who worked hard with rescue workers during 911. The NYFD was presented with a memorial, and a 2nd one is on display at the factory in Waterford.
During the economic downturn, Waterford Crystal changed. It moved it's long time factory, and scaled back in size and number of employees. Even so, everything is still hand made.
As you tour the factory with your guide you're to watch the craftsmen as they work.
Our golf tournament, here in Columbus has a connection to Waterford Crystal. We were surprised to see that. You can tour the factory, and shop (if price is no object) in the show room. We didn't get enough time to tour the town of Waterford at all, which was disappointing to me. It's quite an historic town dating back to The Vikings. A quick bite to eat and time to board our Insight Tour Coach again for another adventure.
Oooh, very pretty. Sounds like a great tour.ReplyDelete
Liz, it really was. Took me awhile to recoup though, seems travel becomes harder with each additional year.Delete
Very nice crystals.ReplyDelete
Thanks Karen for the visit, appreciated.Delete
Karen, I've attempted to visit your blog, but am unable to due to you being on google +. I can see your profile page, but not your posts and I can't leave a comment to let you know. Sorry. All I get is a prompt to make a google+ profile, which I can't due, it creates so many blogging problems. My apologies, as I always return visits otherwise.Delete
