The guestbook and old discussions have been replaced by a new Discussion Forum.
This new forum has several features and will reduce spam messages.
However, anyone using this new Newry Journal forum will have to register first (Click on Register).
You will have to give yourself a username (nickname) and supply a valid email address and once you have signed up you will receive a welcome email.
You will have to click on a web link in the welcome email before you will be able to post messages on the new forum.
We realise that this may be inconvenient but point out that this is how all discussion forums work on the web and that it will improve security.
It will save us having to check – and remove – all those unwanted ads for online casinos etc – that are so annoying!!
