Waterford Camino Tours

Phil and Elaine have founded Waterford Camino Tours and invite visitors from Ireland and abroad to experience the eclectic mix of attractions that make Waterford unique. "Connecting people to something deeper on the inside is key to being able to overcome the challenges that life throws at us."

 

Phil has been an advocate of social justice over the past few decades. During his time as teacher in the Ursuline, Waterford, Phil founded the St. Angela's Peace and Justice group, encouraging his students to be a voice for those who are voiceless in the world. East Timor, Burma, Northern Ireland, Waterford... wherever people lay hidden in the shadows, the students put a spotlight on their plight and articulated the need for change.

 

In recent years, Phil completed a PhD on looking at how people at the grassroots can be a force for change in the world. His thesis looked at a new vision of Church drawing it's inspiration from oppressed countries in Latin America. Empowering people to take steps towards their own liberation is something Phil feels passionately about. Dr. Phil published his book... 'In the hands of the people - a new vision of Church' in 2015.

 

Phil is founder and musical director of the Island of Ireland Peace Choir. Formed 20 years ago this month, the choir has brought it's own unique sound to places synonymous with persecution near and far... from Auschwitz, to the battlefields of Messines to Sri Lanka in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami. Music speaks where words fail is true of the journey the Peace Choir have been on.

 

As Phil and Elaine take their first steps along the Waterford Camino, they do so with the support of great friends and trust in a higher power to guide them safely on their journey.

 

Great Guided Tours of Waterford.
