Picture perfect: Waterford artist’s painting of bridge presented to Rose Kennedy Townsend

A painting by a Waterford artist was presented to Bobby Kennedy’s granddaughter at the recent opening of Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge.

Waterford City resident Maeve Doherty was commissioned by Wexford County Council and her painting of the new bridge was presented to Rose Kennedy Townsend, who officially opened the bridge along with An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on January 29.

Maeve is also related to the Kennedy family and she was accompanied by her Uncle Pat Kennedy from the Dunganstown ancestral home close to this iconic bridge.
