The Clock Tower and Granville Hotel, Waterford City - 768
A colourful print of an acrylic painting of a view of the Clock Tower and Fountain landmark that sits on Meagher's Quay by the River Suir, Waterford. Originally known as the Fountain Clock, it was erected in 1863 when Waterford had the distinction of being Ireland's most active port, trading with hundreds of others around the globe. The fountain troughs on each side were used to water the horses that worked at the dockside.
The Granville Hotel is one of the oldest in the country, dating back to the early 18th century and was owned by a Thomas Meagher whose son Thomas Francis Meagher was a Brigadier General during the American Civil War and was later elected Governor of Montana. It was he who created the Irish Tricolour flag (modelled on the French tricolour), which was first hoisted aloft in Waterford City in 1848.
