Newry City F.C.
Newry City Football Club was a Northern Irish football club founded in 1923. It was based in Newry, County Down and played its home matches at the Showgrounds. Club colours were blue and white. The club was relegated from the IFA Premiership in the 2010–11 season, and after narrowly missing out on promotion back to the top tier the following season, the club was dissolved in September 2012, when a winding up petition brought against the club by former player and manager Gerry Flynn was granted, and the club decided not to appeal the decision.
Famous quotes containing the word city:
“Och, Dublin City, there is no doubtin,
Bates every city upon the say;
Tis there youll see OConnell spoutin,
An Lady Morgan makin tay;
For tis the capital of the finest nation,
Wid charmin pisintry on a fruitful sod,
Fightin like divils for conciliation
An hatin each other for the love of God.”
—Charles James Lever (18091872)
