Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

5 March, 1879  


A desperate shooting affray took place near Portadown, Ireland, recently, by which four men have been dangerously wounded. It seems that a gamekeeper on Lord Lurgan's estate, which is said to be strictly preserved, meeting three poachers, fired upon them, and they returned the fire. The shots on both sides took effect, with the result above stated. The depositions of the wounded men have been taken. The action of the gamekeeper, who fired first, is generally condemned.


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:
