Waterville, County Kerry

Waterville is one of the early historic settings where the Transatlantic Cable was first laid.

The successful landing at Heart�s Content, Newfoundland on July 27, established a permanent electrical communications link that altered for all time personal, commercial and political relations between people across the Atlantic Ocean.

Later, additional cables were laid from Valentia and new stations opened at Ballinskelligs (1874) and Waterville (1884) making County Kerry a major focal point for global communications. Old Cable House
