ABOUT THE ART

Reginald's Tower is the oldest civic, urban structure in Ireland and has played a pivotal role in the country's history. An early fort on this site formed the apex of the triangular Viking settlement at Waterford. It was strategically located on the high ground between a branch of St. John's river in the south-east (since drained and now known as the Mall) and the River Suir to the north.

King John visited the tower in 1210 and ordered new coins to be struck here. Richard II visited the tower in 1394 and again in 1399. On 27 July 1399, Richard left Reginald's Tower as King of England and Wales; on his arrival in England he was captured by the future Henry VI and forced to abdicate.
