 The Southern Trust has completed a £600,000 maintenance project at the historic Hill Building on the St Luke’s site in Armagh.

The work done includes a renovation of the roof and full resurfacing of an existing car park at the back of the facility.

Francis Rice, Chief Executive (Interim) for the Southern Health and Social Care Trust, said:

“Some of the buildings on the St Luke’s site have been in operation for over 190 years and remain key facilities within the Trust. We want to ensure that we continue to offer a standard of safe and high quality service on the site.

“The new car park surface behind the Hill Building will also extend the life and quality of the structure as well as making the spaces clearly marked out for all staff and visitors.”

The Hill Building was originally constructed in the late 1800’s and has been key location to the Trust since its doors first opened in 1898 - originally serving as the first purpose-built hospital for acute mental health care.

The role and purpose of St Luke’s has changed over the years, but it still plays a key role within the Southern Trust. It is now home to a wide range of services including the Sensory Disability Team, Human Resources Department, Memory Team, Community Addiction Team, Promoting Wellbeing Team and Domiciliary Care Service.

Francis ended by saying: “We have currently got around 900 members of staff working on the St Luke’s site and we welcome many visitors and other staff on a daily basis so it’s essential for us to carry out regular maintenance and upgrade projects.”

 Communities Minister Paul Givan MLA has invited the Newry public to enjoy European Heritage Open Days (EHOD) on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September. 

History and culture will be brought to life with over 300 property openings and events.  A host of historic buildings will open their doors to the public, many for 10 and 11 September only.  This year's programme features a wide variety of special events such as walking tours, history re-enactments and film screenings.  With all events free of charge and many family friendly, everyone can take the opportunity to step back in time. 

Minister Givan said: "Organised by my Department, it is very apt that this year's theme across Europe is 'Heritage Communities'. Nurturing such communities is vital if we are to ensure that our heritage is well protected into the future and able to support community cohesion and a strong economy. 

Locations in the Newry area opening for the weekend include the Petty Sessions Coffee House and Moyry Castle in Carrickbroad.  The village Court House, now the aptly named "Petty Sessions Coffee House", is an appropriate setting for a collection of news items relating to a variety of 'petty' misdemeanours dealt with at the monthly Petty Sessions which were held in this building for over 100 years.  Staff will be on hand to give information regarding the history of the building and Petty Sessions Exhibition. Refreshments are available all day. 

Moyry Castle is set on a rocky height overlooking the strategically important Moyry Pass. The small tower, 3 storeys high has rounded corners, gun loops and a machicolation over the door. The Castle was built in 1601 to secure the pass to Mountjoy's northern campaign, but it had a short military life.  It is approached uphill under the railway bridge to the west.

Minister Givan concluded: "The weekend is going from strength to strength each year with over 52,000 people turning out last year. Whilst all events are free some require pre-booking. To avoid disappointment check out and @ehodni on Twitter now." 

1. This is the 19th year that Northern Ireland has joined forces with 50 other countries across Europe for the EHOD weekend.

2. EHOD brochures are available from your local Tourist Information Centre or Library. Download the brochure from Pre-booking is required for some events so book early to avoid disappointment. Like us on Facebook at Love Heritage NI.
