Sited on a bridge over the river, and thus straddling the two counties that Newry connects. It took two architectural competitions to decide on a design for the new town hall. The first, held in 1890, was won by William Stirling. A further competition held the following year, resulted in this rather unexciting design by Batt. In fact it’s unique feature is the site, not the building. In addition to municipal business, it also houses a 500 seat theatre/concert hall.
