In 1913 Matthew Butler’s History of the Barony of Gaultier was published in Waterford.  For a twenty year period covering the 1930s to the 1950s Butler wrote a column for the Waterford News entitled Rambles in Gaultier.  To commemorate all this The Waterford News and Star will publish  throughout 2013 a weekly column based on Butler’s work  entitled  Rambles in Gaultier – Then and Now.  The articles will be contributed by the Barony of Gaultier Historical Society and will be edited for the News and Star by Society member, Ray McGrath.  Because Butler includes in his description of Gaultier parts of Waterford City,  and in view of the upcoming  administrative amalgamation of City and County , we thought it fitting to include the Gaultier parts of the city in this celebration.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Ray McGrath for the Society
