For historic reasons Waterford is lopsided, all on the south side of the deep River Suir which runs through the heart of the city. The north side was once the industrial port but when it moved to a new purpose-built site at Belview, in the early 1990s, the land on the north side of the river became largely redundant. Since then the city has continued to expand southwards into its Waterford hinterland.
Tuam has seen its share of bad news and closures. The Co Galway town saw the railway close down in the 1970s, the loss of the sugar factory in the 1980s, the hospital closed in the 1990s, and it was left reeling by the recession in the late 2000s.
