CONTENTS A


ugust in Waterford is all about beaches, Blue- grass, horseracing, the Sean Kelly Tour, Water- ford trying to make an All-Ireland final and lots


of rain! And we have it all in this month’s edition of My Waterford…. Well maybe not the rain! Our cover features Waterford Olympic hopeful


Thomas Barr who chatted to us before he heads for Rio to follow in his big sister’s footsteps representing Ireland in the Olympic Games. Also in our Olympics feature we talk to three Waterford men who have been there and done that, John Treacy, Jamie Costin and Ciaran Power. We also have a 10 page feature on the seaside


town of Tramore which is buzzing with coffee drink- ing surfers and beach going holiday makers these days. We meet the current Irish Surfing Champion as well as music promoter Vince Power. We are getting to know Frank King, the man who is responsible for the amusement park in Tramore and we look ahead to the famous August Racing Festival. We also have Back to School tips and hints on how


to keep your teeth healthy. Plus our regular features of What’s Trending, The Scene, Beauty and holiday information. Enjoy!
