Borrowed this from Peter McAleavy

Some of it has been seen before but a few bits I did not see.

Enjoyed going down memory lane.

Call me a sentimentalist, but I have
had the pleasure of a trip by steam
train,diving into the baths, taking
a rowing boat out and even one or
two jaunts round the town.

Not top of the list for the youth of today,
but tell me what the town of today has
to offer the youth of today. ~x(

I really enjoyed watching the video even though bits of it were familiar to me.I can remember going to Newry by train and knowing we were almost there when the factory with the pointed roof came in sight.I know I should remember the name of it but it's gone at the moment.I think it was situated where the petrol station is now,just to the Newry side of the Greenbank roundabout.
