This event will look at the maritime and fishery heritage of Cheekpoint, situated at the meeting of the three sister rivers; Barrow, Nore and Suir. It's a gentle 2km walk
Cheekpoint was once the departure point of the Waterford - Milford Mail packet station and the village was industrialised that the time. It was also a village of seafarers, sea captains and fishermen. The walk will look at the built and social heritage that still exists within the community.
