A Prospect of Passage and the River Downe to Dunncannon
Medium: Ink on paper
Drawing of Passage, a small village in County Waterford, Ireland situated on a large inlet about 7 miles upriver from where the River Suir flows into Waterford Harbour. The village, which was founded by the Vikings in the 10th century, developed below a steep cliff and can be seen to the right of this picture. A fort was built here in the 15th century to control the River and the access to the harbour. The fort was taken by Cromwell’s troops in 1649.
