Important donation to Newry and Mourne Museum
A local businessman, Michael McKeown, has donated two busts of John Mitchel and John Martin to the Museum. The busts are by one of Ireland’s leading sculptors, John Sherlock, and were recently exhibited at the Royal Ulster Academy Exhibition in the Ulster Museum in autumn 2012.
The busts of these two men will shortly be on permanent display in the Museum.
