Ardmore is a seaside resort and fishing village in County Waterford, Ireland, not far from Youghal on the south coast of Ireland, with a population of around 330, although this varies with the tourist season. It is believed to be the oldest Christian settlement in Ireland. Saint Declan lived in the region at some time in the period 350–450 AD and Christianised the area before the coming of Saint Patrick.In September 2014, Ardmore was included on a shortlist of Ireland's top tourist towns composed by Fáilte Ireland.HistoryEcclesiastical historyAt the Synod of Rathbreasail in 1111, recognition was given to the Diocese of Ardmore, reputedly founded by Saint Declan, one of the Munster saints said to have preceded Saint Patrick in bringing Christianity to Ireland. He was regarded as a patron saint of the Déisi of East Munster.No longer a residential bishopric, Árd Mór is today listed by the Catholic Church as a titular see. The parish, now called that of Ardmore and Grange, is in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Waterford and Lismore. An old Church of Ireland church in the village is part of the parish of Youghal.
