New lease of life planned for former Newry pub and restaurant

Plans have been lodged to transform a former pub and restaurant in Newry into a large apartment block.

The former Rosie O’Grady’s pub on Canal Street – better known as the O’Hare’s Bar site – looks set for a completely new lease of life.

The most recent reincarnation of the property saw the opening of Rosie O’Grady’s in 2014, however that venture was short-lived.

The venue only lasted a number of years and has lay vacant since its closure.

Now, the building’s owner has decided to change the operational use away from the hospitality business, and plans to reinvigorate the street-scape with a three-storey apartment block, consisting of 14 units.

Th  building work will see 12 two-bedroom apartments constructed in a three-storey block, with a further two one-bedroom apartments in a two-storey block.

The plans have been drawn up by McRae Hanlon Spence architects on behalf of CSP Newry.

The application was submitted to Newry, Mourne and Down Council for consideration, with the outcome expected in the New Year.
