Description A castle was built here in 1212 by Hugh de Lacey and is situated on a small island in the Newry River just before it becomes Carlingford Lough. It was strategically placed at the narrowest point to prevent foreign/undesirable craft from proceeding further up the river to Newry town. It was originally called Caol Castle, prior to it being built The Danes had established a station at Narrowwater in 790 AD from whence they carried out raids on the nearby territory and on religious establishments such as Killeavy. The Vikings remained here until the mid-tenth century when they were beaten and driven out by Murray McNeill. The castle was rebuilt in 1560.
Stephen Maxwell, Bangor, County Down Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement I returned to photography and the digital age in the early 2000s after a break of about 18 years. I enjoy the immediacy of digital photography and I am not averse to post production work on an image. I enjoy walking and travelling and have my camera with me a s a consequence of these activities. Photography is a means of relaxation and I enjoy it for itself. I am glad that others enjoy, comment upon and even purchase my work.
