Newry men’s outfitters McCartan Bros have been selected by the Newry, Mourne & Down District Council to create a new suit for the John Mitchel statue we can reveal.

The statue of the Irish Patriot at John Mitchel Place has been adorned with what is called a ‘contemporary update’.

A McCartan Bros spokesman told us:

“When we were briefed with updating the image of the John Mitchel statue we thought we’d go with a navy blazer, a classic white shirt and a nice pair of brown chinos to make the statue more in line with 2019.”
