Bonus Episode: The Dominicans in Newry

Update: 2022-06-08


In this episode, the Newry historian, Anthony Russell, will explore the 150-year story of the Dominicans in Newry. From humble beginnings with a community of just five men living in a small house on Hyde Market to the building of the magnificent Church of The Sacred Heart and Saint Catherine of Sienna in the 19th century. We’ll learn how, in the 20thcentury, the Dominicans adapted to the reforms of the second Vatican council and how they reached out to other denominations. And we’ll hear how, more recently, they established a new lectio centre and how they dealt with the challenges of the pandemic.

This episode was written and presented by Anthony Russell, and it was produced by Mark G. Byrne.


This episode owes much to the editor and contributors of the 1928 Newry Dominican Golden Jubilee Magazine.
