NEWRY, a thriving commercial town at the head of Carlingford Bay, on the verge of the county, and about 25 m. s.w. of Downpatrick.—A pleasant cheerful vicinity; and a good central station. See canal, drawbridges &c. ½ m. distant are the Creeve rocks, with ruins of old Chapel. The mineralogist may here examine specimens of metallic spar, ponderous and ferruginous. At Crownbridge, 1 m. e., a Danish rath; and near it some Druidical remains. At Narrow-water, the port of Newry, see ancient Castle and Salt-works. N. of it 5 m. is Tuscan Pass, with several small lakes in which are plenty of pike. The tourist may also visit Warren's Point where large ships are obliged to Ile, and where the whole line of coast presents a continuation of [next page] of gentlemen's houses and whitened cottages, enlivened in the bathing season by numerous parties.
