A 19 year-old Mayobridge student who visited Newry at the weekend for the first time said it is ‘quite overrated really’ we can reveal.
The Art & Design UCD student who just never got around to going to Newry says she was ‘disappointed’ and ‘not surprised’ by the lack of culture and art in the city.
We spoke with her from Mayobridge via Satellite phone today and she told us:
“Obviously with me living in Dublin now I have seen the best of arts and culture not just in Ireland but in Europe. When I got off the bus in Newry I was shocked at the lack of culture in the dreary little city.
I enjoyed the smell of piss from the Canal and the permanent structures that look like shopping trolleys in the Canal. That was the highlight for me.”
