Launch of South Armagh Business Improvement Group

1st April 2022

Last night saw the official launch of the newly established South Armagh Business Improvement Group at Killeavy Castle where guest speakers on the night included Finance Minister Conor Murphy and Tony McKeown (CEO of Newry Chamber).

At the launch, John Nealon, Chairman of #SABIG outlined the groups principal objectives which are to have more people working in, living in, shopping in, spending leisure time in, and visiting South Armagh.

Our mission is to connect businesses across the region to encourage collaboration; promote a positive image; and to represent the area with key stakeholders to deliver significant projects and investment.

Through the development of the retail, leisure, hospitality, services and manufacturing sectors, we believe South Armagh will achieve sustainable economic development, growth, jobs and wealth in the short, medium and long term.

If you are a business in the following areas, and would like to gain further insight into our group or wish to register your support, please do so by sending a direct message and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Belleeks, Bessbrook, Camlough, Creggan, Crossmaglen, Cullaville, Cullyhanna, Dromintee, Forkhill, Jonesborough, Lissummon, Meigh, Mullaghawn, Newtownhamilton, Poyntzpass, Whitecross and Silverbridge.


The organising committee would once again like to thank all those local businesses who attended the launch night and offered their support as well as local politicians Pete Byrne, Justin McNulty MLA, Aoife Finnegan and Oonagh Magennis.
