REVEALED: The shortlist for Waterford's All Time Great

REVEALED: The shortlist for Waterford's All Time Great

Who will be crowned Waterford's All Time Great?

The shortlist of names for the search to find Waterford's All Time Great has been drawn up and the competition will now begin in earnest. 

16 people have been selected from hundreds of nominations and now the fun really begins! Waterford Live will shortly launch a series of online polls pitting our nominees head-to-head at quarter-final, semi-final and eventually final stage over the coming weeks.

A draw will take place this Friday, the results of which will be posted online. Then, the polls will ask you, the reader, to determine who is Waterford's All Time Great.

"As you can see, a fantastically varied list of 16 names has been assembled - generations of people who have contributed greatly to local life in this county and this recognises their work,” according to the Waterford Live team. 

A huge thank you to our sponsors: Texaco Spar, Autopower, Centra Applegreen Ballylynch, and O'Brien Marble and Granite. 

The following are the sixteen nominees for Waterford's All Time Great:
