Watercolour print of Reginald’s Tower, Waterford. Established as a defensive position by the Vikings as early as 853, the first tower on the site was built after 914. Re-built by the Anglo Normans in the 12th century, with the top two floors being added in the 15th century, the tower formed the strongpoint of the medieval defensive walls that enclosed the city. Over the centuries it has been used as a mint, prison and military store, and Ireland’s oldest civic building forms the apex of the triangular settlement known to this day as the Viking Triangle.
