The City of Newry

Newry Newry is a city in Northern Ireland. The River Clanrye, which runs through the city, forms the historic border between County Armagh and County Down. It is approximately 30 miles from Belfast and 65 miles from Dublin. The city of Newry has a population in the region of 30,000, while Newry and Mourne Council Area has a population approaching 90,000.

Newry was founded in 1144 alongside a Cistercian monastery and is one of Northern Ireland’s oldest towns. The city of Newry is one of the constituent cities of the Dublin-Belfast corridor and sits at the entry to the “Gap of the North”, close to the border with the Republic of Ireland. It grew as a market town and a garrison and became a port in 1742 when it was linked to Lough Neagh by the first summit-level canal in Britain or Ireland. In March 2002, as part of Queen Elizabeth’s Golden Jubilee celebrations, Newry was granted city status alongside Lisburn.
