Newry Town Hall
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (January 2010)|
The Clanrye River, which runs through the heart of Newry, forms part of the border between County Down and County Armagh and hence the Town Hall was built over it, to meet the needs of the people from both sides of the growing town. Whilst the council moved its debating chambers to Monaghan Row in the 1980s, the Town Hall serves today a mostly ceremonial function. It features a large hall that is often used for concerts and drama productions as well as the annual Newry Musical Feis.
U2 played the venue in 1980 and were reportedly booed off stage.
