From looking at the investors it includes Conor McCarthy (Leadmore Investment Company) who own Dublin AeroSpace, it looks like Waterford will be a new aircraft maintenance site.

Sorry I can't post links here yet but google will bring you to those articles.

With 7831ft x145 that's big enough for the likes of Ryanair, and Aerlingus to operate .
Question is,
Is there demand for large aircraft down there ?.
I had wondered about ' incoming ' EU Tourist flights, one of the English south coast Airports sees a few inbound German flights .

So could this be a ' Tourist Airport'?.
And is the Terminal getting upgraded to match such a good sized Runway ? .
