Newry is a clean, well-built, and thriving town. It is
one of the most important Irish ports for the exporta-
tion of cattle and all kinds of agricultural produce to
Liverpool, Glasgow, &c. The'imports consist chiefly of
timber, coal, slates, cotton, wine, groceries, &c., and
the wholesale trade in these commodities is very ex-
tensive. Vessels drawing 15 ft. of water can reach the
Albert basin by the ship canal. (For shipping sta-
tistics, see Appendix.) Among other industries are
brewing, tanning, rope and sail-making, and the mfr.
of machinery and implements of husbandry. There
are large granite quarries, with cutting and polishing
works, in the vicinity. The granite is capable of re-
ceiving a very high polish, and monuments, chimney-
pieces, &c., made from it are exported. Newry is an
ancient place ; it had an abbey founded in 1175, and a
castle, which was destroyed by Edward Bruce in 1318 ;
the town was nearly destroyed by the Duke of Berwick
in 1689, but revived with the making of the canal in
1741. Newry gives the title of viscount to the Earl of
Kilmorey. It returns 1 member to Parliament.
