Greenore school, 1881
Title: Greenore school, 1881
Place: Greenore, Northern Ireland
Description: Newly completed school in Greenore, Northern Ireland, April 1881. The village of Greenore, at the mouth of Carlingford Lough, grew up in the 1860s and 1870s, when the railway connecting Newry and Dundalk to the deepwater port of Greenore opened. The Dundalk, Newry & Greenore Railway was owned and operated by the London & North Western Railway, which also provided ferry services across the Irish Sea. The railway closed in 1951, but the port still ships freight and livestock to Britain and Europe. Greenore is a picturesque village, close to the mountains of Mourne. It also had a hotel and golf course which were widely used by British tourists.
