Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

26 February, 1931  


The operations in connection with the joining up of the Belfast main electricity supply to the Lurgan electricity station are almost completed, and it is anticipated that all will be in readiness in the course of a couple of weeks or so to shut off the three engines in William Street at present supplying the town, and to switch over from Belfast. The electricity sub-station at the southern end of the town near the Glenavon football grounds has been completed, and Messrs. Callaghan and Sons, Lurgan, to whom the contract was given, have constructed a really substantial building at a cost of 800.

Coincident with the completion of this work, the Messrs. Henley, of London, completed the laying of the over head high-tension cable. Lurgan manufacturers and residents who depend on electric power and heating may now rest content that the supply will be adequate enough to meet all their requirements, especially as the three engines at the William Street concerns at present are running satisfactorily, and successfully coping with the mid-winter peak-load.


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.
