Newcastle 6
Newcastle is a beautiful place but the people are not friendly or helpful and live in their own little worlds, afraid to allow anyone else in. The Municipal services are excellent, the town in general is very neat and well maintained, services in the business areas and retail businesses are very good and friendly as well as very efficient. I would just suggest a few more entertainment centers, and Christian shops, and craft shops and something to keep residents entertained, this is sorely lacking, especially over the weekends, there is no family entertainment, could I suggest a Fleamarket maybe on a daily basis or even just on the weekend, a pleasure park maybe something similiar to Gold Reef City, or Water World or something like a center where all the goods and articles of all cultures...

Waterford 6
The city itself is a nasty, dirty disused and boring spot. Unemployment is the highest per head of capita of any county in Ireland. The people of Waterford City & County are lovely however, some of the finest that you will ever come across. Decent, salt of the earth types. Very few decent restaurants, though there are some reasonable pubs to go out in, Downes, Geoffs, Alfie Hales, T&H Doolans, The Showboat, away from the main student-frequented areas really. Few gyms, none of any real quality except the Kingfisher, which is a poor best as it is. Waterford county however, is utterly stunning. The Comeragh Mountains and the many climbs within (Coumshingaun for example), the archaeological sites associated with the Comeraghs, the copper coast, rolling hills, the beaches and bays, fabulous!...
