It's a new direction for the Festival of Windows from the Newry 2020 group and if last years event is anything to go by, should prove very popular.

Commenting on this weekends event Garry McElherron who oversees the project said "we wanted something fresh and different this year and we hope the people who come to visit and even take part in holding a spray can will enjoy the event. Temporary walls are being erected on the day and they will be gone the next. I would like to thank Newry Council for helping towards funding the event."

Artists: KVLR, Jonny McKerr, Conor McGinley, DMC and more are attending and will amaze people as they bring their 64 Sq foot pieces of art to life.
