Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

22 May, 1889  


The gamblers who were recently arrested while playing at a Baccarat club, including Lords Dudley, Lurgan and Paulet, have all been discharged. The owner of the club premises was fined 600, and the minor officials were also fined in various smaller sums.

A bill has been introduced into Parliament, in consequent of the recent prosecutions instituted against the betting clubs, providing for the repeal of the clause in the present Act which makes it a penal offence to play the game of Baccarat.


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:

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