Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Munster / County Kerry / Waterville / Tech Amergin Community Arts & Education Centre
Amergin (a mythological figure sometimes known as Aimhirghin Glúngheal) was the poet, seer and lawmaker of the Milesians, the Gaelic invaders, whose first successful landfall was at what is now Waterville. As he stepped ashore, Amergin recited his famous poem claiming identity with the surrounding landscape. 'Tech' is the modern 'teach', a house. Waterville Vocational School, which is now reincarnated as Tech Amergin Community Arts & Education Centre was commonly known as 'The Tech' or Technical School. Hence the name, a wordplay on the centre's mythological and modern origins.Put Tech Amergin Community Arts & Education Centre on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Waterville online tour planner.
