dc.descriptionThis image was originally created by Thomas Mann Baynes and engraved for 'Illustrated Ireland' in 1831. From this publication we have the following excerpt concerning this image: "This is one of the neatest, most thriving, and most agreeable towns, of the second class, in the kingdom. Although of early foundation, it acknowledges Sir N. Bagnal, Knt., Marshal of Ireland, as the author of its prosperity and rank. It was this remarkable person who first erected a 'good town' here, with a church and castle, and obtained singular privledges for his lordship of Newry, some of which, such as granting of marriage licenses and probates of wills, are still retained and exercised by the Lord of the Manor. The shipping introduced into the middle distance, at the base of the hills, are conducted thither by an artificial navigation: this canal, the first opened in Ireland, is aided by the same small river, and a communication opened with the navigable part of the river Bann, and thence with Lough Neagh. A beautiful church with an elevated spire, a magnificent Roman Catholic Cathedral in the pointed style, with many beautiful villas, of recent formation, contribute to adorn this prosperous town, and its romantic suburbs."
