The Business of Newry

A 200 Year Commemorative Publication of the History of Business in Newry

Newry has been the centre of business for more than 1500 years.

From at least 1820, the businesspeople of Newry banded together in a Chamber of Commerce to effect such matters as the extension of the Canal, construction of the Albert Basin and the Sugar Island Basin.

Newry Chamber of Commerce & Trade wishes to mark the 200th anniversary of that movement in the city, with a commemorative publication entitled ‘The Business of Newry’.

This highly illustrated and well-researched volume will trace the facts and figures, the personalities and the families who have made this city what it is today.

This will be a valuable corporate gift to clients or visitors from other cities or countries as an authentic product of Newry origin. For the generations of families at the heart of the business life of Newry, it will be a unique family record of their involvement in the development of the city.  Equally, it will be of interest to friends and family who wish to explore the business heritage of how Newry has developed into the city it is today.
