The original "Sin City"
As one of the first towns in Ireland, Waterford as it was then called was rumored to have more taverns and casinos then people. During its heyday, the town was one of the most active towns not only in Ireland, but in all of Renaissance Kingdoms. The highest count observed was 43 people in the taverns. Great leadership, a strong mentor team and the blending of just the right people created an atmosphere that any who lived in long for still today.
Rumors of illegal activities, wild drunken parties, truth or dare games, seductive dances, "Midnight Margaritas", and whipped cream wars. It all happened here. Two of the more popular taverns at that time were The Crooked Halo and The Backroom. A Bachelor/Bachelorette auction for the benefit of the town forced many to buy several allotments of tokens such was the bidding.
It was and still is the home base for many of the NNGO.
Ireland's first "attempted" murder happened in Port Láirge. Sources say Mick_ was offered a dance in payment for killing local resident Kellkiernan, While Mick_ did indeed stab the man, and most reports confirmed his demise, Kell is still alive.
This was also the sight of the first revolt in Ireland. A scoundrel from another country arrived in town while it was a colony, revolted as soon as the colony safety was off and looted the town.
Instead of taking this lying down, the residents banded together and ousted the man and his accomplices. He fled to Italy and was later dealt with by the King. The revolt marks the point where people were no longer from England, Scotland, etc they were from Waterford and would defend their home at any cost.
