  • The Mournes and Newcastle

    Situated at the foot of the Mourne Mountains Newcastle is a vibrant coastal town popular for many as a holiday getaway destination and if a popular gateway to the Moure Mountain range via Donnard Park. The “Mournes” have been romantically immortalised by a line in from the the Percy French song “The Mountains of Mourne”


    Oh, Mary, this London’s a wonderful sight
    With people here working by day and by night
    They don’t sow potatoes, nor barley nor wheat
    But there’ gangs of them digging for gold in the streets
    At least when I asked them that’s what I was told
    So I just took a hand at this diggin’ for gold
    But for all that I found there I might as well be
    Where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea.
