Growing up in a traditional Irish fishing community

Andrew Doherty vividly brings you into the heart of a now practically vanished fishing community, deep into the domestic lives of the people making a hard and precarious living from the river, only 6 miles from Waterford City Centre.

He shares his affectionate memories of the local people and the fun that was to be had as a child amongst the fishing boats and nets.  He also takes you on the river, on the bright and beautiful days and on the wild and dangerous nights, which he describes with a natural story-telling ability.
