Live to try new things and explore new places in Ardmore. With local heritage sites like the Round Tower and Cathedral, miles of walks, beautiful beaches for every season, top-rated hotels, experiential activities and more, you’ll never be short of great things to do in Ardmore, whether planning a day trip or a family vacation.
Stories about places are part of our tradition.
Beyond the beaches and beneath the bay, Ardmore contains a rich maritime history.
The sea has been a place of possibility, as U-Boats roamed the coasts and refugees from the wars floated in. Many lives have been lost off our shores.
This is an effort to tell some of their stories and appreciate Ardmores connection with the sea.
It is a collection of the history and stories that John Murphy found, emanating from an accruing debt to Siobhan Lincoln and this website (ardmorewaterford.com). This is the film he’s been working on for months.
John Murphy is an amazing Filmmaker, Visual Designer, and Storyteller. John is based in Ardmore, West Waterford. He is soon to be (he hopes) a graduate of NUI Galway’s Drama, Theatre and Performance programme. He aspires to look like Carl Fredricksen from Up and gets closer by the day.
His work has focused on Theatre and promotional work. He operates remotely as a Freelance Editor and Motion Graphics Designer. Locally, he is available for full production
We hope you enjoy it! If you’d like to support John and see more of my work, you can follow him on instagram @slaod_ and on his YouTube.
For the fiscally inclined, you can buy him a coffee (perhaps a pint if god is good) at https://ko-fi.com/slaod, or just share the film with friends and family. It’s all very much appreciated!
