St Mary's Church ('The Old Chapel') was built in 1789, forty years before Catholic Emancipation. The Church served as a Cathedral for 35 years and as a Dominican Church from 1871 until 1875. This is the oldest site of worship in the Parish and the burial ground for generations of Newry people.
With its advanced age, the church has developed a number of very serious problems and is now in need of immediate intervention if we are to Save St. Mary's for future generations.
You can help Save St. Mary's by making a donation of any size. Every single penny you give will go towards the restoration of St. Mary's. No amount is too small.Read more...
