Waterford Libraries and staff are deeply saddened at the passing of travel writer and independent spirit, Dervla Murphy.
“As Mayor of Waterford City and County, I am saddened to hear of Dervla Murphy’s passing and extend my condolences to her daughter, grandchildren and many friends.
Dervla was Ireland’s most famous travel writer and a native of Lismore, Co Waterford. During her ninety years Dervla travelled across continents, wrote over 25 travel books and famously documented her six-month journey through Europe, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India on a bike in Full Tilt: Ireland to India with a Bicycle in 1965.
Waterford has lost an icon, a trailblazer, an intrepid adventurer and a woman who was ahead of her time.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam”
Mayor of Waterford City and County, Cllr. Joe Kelly
