Event description

Description

As Waterford MP and leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party John Redmond was a very popular figure in Waterford. He was first elected MP for Waterford on 23rd December 1891 and served until his death in 1918. A much needed new bridge across the River Suir in Waterford City was named in his honour and opened by him on 10th February 1913. John Redmond ‘s son Captain William Redmond was elected in the by-election in Waterford following his death and was one of the few Irish Parliamentary Party representatives elected in the December 1918 elections. The Redmond connection continued after his son’s death with the election of his daughter-in-law Bridget Redmond, continuing the Waterford and Redmond connection until her death in 1952.

To honour and remember John Redmond on the 100th anniversary of his death Waterford City and County Council will host the following events in March 2018.
