One of Newry’s biggest ghettos is to get a massive boost with the news that Derrybeg is to be twinned with New York City we can reveal.
Because of the many place names the two places share such as Main Avenue and 5th Avenue the mayor of New York Bill de Blasio has asked the council to twin the two districts.
Speaking to Newry Spud local taxi entrepreneur Tommy Lambe told us:
“This is a massive move for the business community in Newry. I’ve already ordered 5 New York style yellow cabs to service the Derrybeg/New York folk in and out of the metropolitan areas within Newry. Awesome man.”
