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.
