Australian John Macan (author of Macans of Clanbrassil) holidayed here last year with his wife Annette and while touring the town, and South Armagh with your editor, took this snapshot of the Rainbow building on Canal Street.

It is included here because recent speculation locates the nineteenth century Newry Baths on this site.  Can anybody confirm (or disallow) this?  If so please add a note to the Discussions.

This building is currently being gutted.  Does anybody know what might rise from its ashes?
