We want a brighter future for Newry and we want you to be part of it.

Late in 2013 www.newry.ie published an article under the heading newry-2020-a-vision-for-our-city-s-future

The article contains a lot of great ideas and with the proper drive and will behind them all are achievable, but we have to act now, we can no longer wait for others to pick up the baton.

As a business owner & citizen of Newry I believe, given the depth of talent and abilities of the people of Newry we can, collectively drive Newry towards a brighter future for ourselves and our children.

The Big Questions

 What do you want from me?

Our plan, our mission is to get together as many business people, private & concerned citizens as possible to plan events, create projects and propel Newry City to a higher stage.

It won't happen unless we get everyone in Newry behind this, and make Newry more attractive to outside visitors.

Early in 2014 we will be organising a meeting/meetings with all who express interest and put together a plan to carry us forward, we want everyone's opinion, thoughts & ideas,

No One of Us is Smarter than All of Us.


What do I get out of this?

A fair question if you own a business or work in Newry: We aim to make our City more attractive to  outside visitors, to make it more attractive to external & internal investment,  create more jobs, more opportunities, better businesses.

If you live in Newry: 

We will give you more/better entertainment, a greater sense of pride, a greater sense of belonging, A city to be more proud of..

What makes this initiative different?

Newry 2020 will be primarily privately funded from local businesses & people working towards short, medium & long term goals for the benefit of all. 

We will celebrate all people, all businesses, all cultures, all Newry.

We see a year long celebration, every year, food festivals, music festivals, Arts, trade crafts, sport events, if you can think it we will try.
