The historic archway of the former Linenhall Square Barracks
The historic archway of the former Linenhall Square Barracks
Built in 1783 the Linen Hall was in the early 19thC converted into a large and permanent military barracks which survived until 1923 when the Army moved to the nearby village of Bessbrook. In its glory days Newry Barracks had a complement of 600 men. After the withdrawal of the military the barracks became an inner city working class housing estate. In recent decades these run down dwellings have been replaced by modern houses.
