Newry and Mourne District Geography Investigation

Extracts from this document...


Contents Introduction Newry and Mourne district was established in 1973. Newry is situated on the main Dublin to Belfast road. It lies along the River Clanrye and Newry Canal, near Carlingford Lough (inlet of the sea) and the Mourne Mountains. It is bordered by the districts of Armagh and Down to the northeast, by the Irish Sea to the east, and by the Irish Republic to the south and west. The Newry Canal, built in 1730-41 and the first major canal in the British Isles, flows between Lough Neagh and Carlingford Lough and divides the district in two, with low mountains on the east and west. The town developed around a Cistercian abbey founded on the Clanrye by St. Malachy about 1144 . The Irish name of the town, Iubhar Cinn Tr�gha, means "the yew tree at the head of the Strand," and it is alleged that the original yew, the symbol of immortality, was planted by St. Patrick. Because of its position in a gap of the hills, Newry is the seat of the Roman Catholic bishop of Dromore, and the Cathedral of Saints Patrick and Colman was completed in 1825. The town's industries include spinning and weaving of linen and cotton, the manufacture of waterproof clothing, food processing, and granite quarrying. ...read more.
