diocese of Waterford

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Originally a Norse city and thus an object of Anglo‐Norman colonization of Ireland, it was a suffragan see of Canterbury from 1096. Waterford was first listed as a bishopric at the Council of Kells‐Mellifont (1152), though there was no regular succession of bishops until 1175. Waterford and Lismore is still a catholic bishopric in the province of Cashel, but the Anglican see was merged with the Cashel diocese in 1833.
