ABSTINENCE FROM DRINK

A mission was recently given at Lurgan, in the North of Ireland, by the Redemptorist Fathers. A feature of the mission was the number who joined the Anti-Treating LeagueŚ2500 between Lurgan and Maghera. Upwards of three hundred joined the Heroic Offering of abstinence from drink for life. The total abstinence movement has taken a great lead in recent years in the parish, where there are already four halls belonging to the different societies.

The information on this website is free and will always be so. However, there are many documents and records that we would like to show here that are only available for sale. If you would like to make a donation to the Lurgan Ancestry project, however small (or large!), to enable us to acquire these records, it would be very much appreciated. We could cover our pages in Goggle Ads to raise money, but feel that this would detract from the information we are trying to provide. You can also help us to raise money by purchasing some of our ebooks on our sister website: www.genealogyebooks.com

The Lurgan Ancestry Project is a not for profit website, all monies raised from the site go back into it.
