Apologies for the unwarranted lines on the left of one of these photos. Shown, in addition to the Town Centre, are Meadow/Clanrye estate, Priory Crescent/Chapel Street, Mercy Home and Old Chapel, O’Neill Avenue. Hope you enjoy seeing all of them!
By 1963 the Livestock market on Patick Street was discontinued, the site serving as a car park. Note the Tech was not yet constructed, and of course, the Sports Centre. Other views are of Monaghan St, Edward St, Chequer Hill, Cecil Street, Pound Road, John Martin Gardens etc.
These photos show some parts of Newry, as it was forty years ago. The five views are of; the Bridge Street region; Dublin Road as Glenvale Park was being built; The first row of Barcroft Park and Raymond Kelly Park; Market Square; and Abbey Grammar and Masters House, two years before the new Grammar opened.
These five photographs illustrate Rostrevor at the turn of the twentieth century. The Great Northern Hotel is shown, as is Mary Street, The Square and the shoreline below Slieve Martin. Some photos, by nature of age, lack a little in clarity.
These five photographs were taken in winter 2002. They depict Pighall Loanan, showing Helen’s Terrace with St Bridget’s Church in the background. The first photo is of Cowan Street below St Patrick’s Church. Also shown are the Clanrye Estuary from Victoria Locks, Swans on Albert Basin and Fathom Mountain.
