Newry Workhouse

Newry Mendicity Institution "The Workhouse" or "Poor House"

A Mendicity Institution supported by voluntary contributions has existed in Newry for 10 years, the funds were at first distributed to a number of poor persons, partly in money without work, spinning and partly in meal. It was found however that by this system the number of beggers in the town was not diminished, and in January 1834 a new plan was adoped. A house was taken into which any persons applying for relief is admitted, and he is supplied with food and clothing, on condition of performing a certin quanity of work, and complying with the other regulations of the establishment, if any person applying for relief refuses to go into the house, he is carried before the magistrates who commit him as a vagrant, the following are the regulations required to be observed by the inmates of this Asylum.

1, All persons found begging in the town of Newry will be taken up by the Beadles and prosecuted as vagrants according to the law.
2, All persons in want of food, on application to the superintendents will be supplied therewith, for which a portion of work, suited to the capability of each applicant, will be allotted and the work so allotted and the work so allotted must be performed before the applicant is suffered to leave the institution.
3, All persons who become inmates must submit to strict discipline, hard fare and constant labour, and conform to all other rules of the establishment.
4, All strangers passing through the town in distress will be allowed to remain one night in the workhouse.
5, No spirituous liquors or tobacco will be allowed in the establishment.
6, All persons on entering as inmates, must be washed in the bath, their hair cut and combed, the clothes belonging to the institution put on, their own cleaned, tied up, labelled with the name of the individual, in order that they may be returned to the owner on leaving the establishment, when the clothes belonging to the instituation must be given up.
7, The hours for rising during 8 months of the year, commencing the 1st of March to be 6, o'clock, the beds and bed clothes to be folded up, the rooms cleaned,  and work to commence at half past 6 precisely, breakfast at 9 o'clock, work resumed at 10 o'clock, dinner at 3 o'clock work resumed at four, and to continue until half past six. All the inmates must be in bed at nine o'clock. The superintendents will examine the different rooms at a quarter past nine, and those disobeying this rule will have to perform the extra work allotted for disobedience of orders.
8, Any of the inmates disobeying the orders of the superintendents will be punished by extra work, according to the nature of their offence, for a second offence such further punishment  as the committee may direct and the law sanction.
9, That clergymen only be permitted to give religious instruction to the inmates of the workhouse, circulate or lend religious books or tracts to or among them and that exclusively among the members of their own communion.
