    I am one-half Irish and am very proud of the Waterford crystal (Lismore) that I was given at my wedding over 35 years ago.  Every time I handle one of those goblets, I think of my Irish grandparents.  I also own two of the huge Millenium goblets from 2000.  It has been a lifelong dream of mine to someday make it to Ireland and the Waterford Factory was near the top of my "Want to See" list.  If they move this factory to Asia, I will definitely never buy another piece.  It just sickens me to think they could do this to these workers, who I view as artisans.   The beauty of the glassware is worth every cent it costs.  Damn, this just makes me sick.
