This is quite a big article, and took a fair bit of work to get it all scanned in and readable, but I feel it was well worth the effort :D

From the Newry Reporter Tuesday August 7th 1906

.. and its not over yet - there is the 2nd part of the article and a photo to follow (but not tonight) :D

Part 2

I like the idea of the jar containing coins,
being laid into the foundation.
Also the silver trowel that was given to
Mrs. Hall, would it still be at Narrow Water Castle?
