Picture perfect Dunmore East


unmore East is the place to be at the moment. The village is all abuzz with the excitement and activity surrounding

the filming of the Eastenders spin off Redwater. Not only that, but recent good weather has meant that people are flocking to the seaside to make the most of the sunshine while it lasts. Dunmore East is renowned for its beautiful

scenery, good food and magnificent walks. If you have not been in the woods in Dunmore recently then we can certainly recommend that you make it your business to head out there over the sum- mer. The Woods and Parks Committee recently

secured funding from the Department of Agricul- ture and the paths and walkways in the woods have been improved following damage caused by storms in 2014, new shrubs have also been planted. The result is magnificent and already the benefits can be seen. Hopefully the woods will be enjoyed by many generations to come.

DEVLEOPMENT There is evidence that County Waterford is start- ing to feel the benefits of our slow ascent out of the recession with a number of recent develop- ments around Dunmore East. The Ocean hotel

has been taken over by new proprietors, Dave and Jacqui Deegan who have revamped the hotel as The Three Sisters Inn, providing top quality food and hospitality right in the heart of the village. The Haven Hotel has re-opened following last year’s fire and has already hosted numerous weddings, communions and confirmations. The Dunmore East Golf Club has also re-opened fol- lowing fire and the new improved club house now houses The Lighthouse Restaurant. And finally the prominent site of the former Candlelight hotel has finally been sold and development of a private residence is expected to start soon.

Palmer Auctioneers - no. 1 sales agent in Dunmore East T

he Palmer Family has had a long and proud association with Waterford City and the South East going back to the 17th century.

The company was originally established by Don- ald Palmers grandfather, John D Palmer, in 1923 with offices at Catherine Street, Waterford and is the longest established estate agency in Wa- terford. Donald took over the running of the firm from his father, Harry Palmer, in 1968 and worked for many years with his brother John, who also ran a successful Tramore based estate agency. Another brother, Robin Palmer, was also a found- ing partner of the successful Palmer McCormack estate agency in Dublin so you could almost say that auctioneering is in the blood! Don is very proud of the fact that Palmer Auctioneers are a fourth generation, locally owned family business and Don explains that this is one of the major strengths of Palmers in that as a family business

Pictured in Dunmore East are the Palmer family, from left: Guy, Don, Keith and Warren.

Palmers are prepared to work harder and longer in order to secure their clients the best price and most advantageous terms possible.

...They are all intimately familiar with Dunmore and its surroundings and indeed Palmers are well known for selling coastal properties...

Don states that they are very busy in Dunmore

East throughout the year, especially so during the summer months. He is delighted that the market in Waterford and Dunmore in particular, has bounced back, with prices recovering and properties selling in a matter of weeks rather than months, “It’s not unusual to have multiple bidders and we are achieving excellent prices across the board”. Is it any wonder that Palmers are the number one sales agent in Dunmore. Don has been living in a picture postcard thatched cottage in the center of the village for the last 20 years and as children the boys have fond memories of spending many an idyllic summer in Dunmore East and Woodstown, where they grew up. As such they are all intimately familiar with Dunmore and its surroundings and

indeed Palmers are well known for selling coastal properties from Cheekpoint to Bonmahon and beyond.

While Don remains the principal of the busi- ness, the fourth generation of Palmer Auctioneers is represented by his sons Warren, Keith & Guy. Both Warren and Keith have extensive experience in residential sales in Waterford city and its envi- rons with a particular emphasis on second hand residential and coastal properties. Dons’ young- est son, Guy, joined the company in 2015 after many years working with some of the premier names in the business in Dublin and London such as Hook & McDonald and the Ballymore group. In 2007, Palmers moved from Lombard Street
