Newry City Centre Management in conjunction with Newry and Mourne District Council and local traders have been successful in making a funding application to the Department of Social Development for a revitalisation scheme for the newly completed Newry Public Realm Areas in Hill Street and Monaghan Street.

The revitalisation scheme will provide £300,000 over the next two years to implement a variety of innovative projects to assist in the marketing of the Public Realm Areas.  These will include market projects, major events, shop front reconfiguration and painting.
