Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

25 November, 1907  


The vagaries of a cow have kept the ordinarily quiet town of Lurgan in a turmoil (reports the London "Daily Mail" of 5th October).

When passing along the High Street, the animal suddenly turned into a fancy goods shop, inspected the contents, and then passed through to the kitchen. There she disarranged the contents of the pantry, and returning to the shop took up her position behind the counter. The attendants fled in terror, and the animal remained there for some little time, gazing through the window at the crowds assembled outside, and occasionally smashing up 'quantities of goods. Finally, a crowd of policemen and butchers' assistants entered, and lassoed the cow, dragging her through the kitchen to the yard, and hence to the street.


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.
