Placenames of the Three Sister Rivers (Barrow, Nore & Suir)

Andrew Doherty
Waterford Harbour Tides & Tales

The Three Sister River network of the Barrow, Nore and Suir has been a vibrant artery and resource for hundreds of years. Families were reared on the rivers and it sustained fishing, boating, recreation and transport. Each headland, bay and in many cases even rocks had names associated with their locations. This online project will reach out to those with a love of the rivers, exploring and capturing the origins of these names, preserving them for the future. On each day of Heritage week at least two stories will be shared online at https://tidesandtales.ie. There will also be daily social media postings where others can get involved using the hashtag #HeritageWeek2020 and #ThreeSistersPlacenames The project will culminate on Water Heritage Day with a new webpage with an A-Z list of placenames showcased through a wide range of mediums including stories, poetry, photographs, and art. The website can be accessed through this link: https://tidesandtales.ie/placenames-of-the-three-sisters/
