National Heritage Week in the Geopark

National Heritage Week 2017 has just finished and throughout the land it was the best ever. The Copper Coast Geopark ran three successful events.

Geologist Robbie Galvin attracted a good following and gave a lively account of the local geology as seen at Tra Na Mbo Cove.

Robbie again engaged full attention as he brought life to the collection of rocks and minerals in the Geopark Centre. Serenella had even come up with pink cup-cakes in the café to reflect the Heritage Week theme!

About Copper Coast Geopark

The Copper Coast Geopark is in Co. Waterford, Ireland and is an outdoor museum of geological records; it stretches along the coast from Kilfarassy Beach, near Fenor in the east to Ballyvoile Beach near Stradbally to the west. Volcanoes, oceans, deserts and ice sheets all combined to create the rocks which provide the physical foundation of the natural and cultural landscapes of the area. Follow the self-guided "Copper Coast" trail and walking cards available from the The Copper Coast Geopark Centre in Bunmahon.
