Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

5 September 1922  


A Belfast message reports a shocking tragedy at Portadown, a 14-year-old boy named Peter M'Clean accidentally stabbing himself to death. He was rehearsing a cowboy incident he had seen in the pictures in Lurgan, and drove a knife so violently against his body that it penetrated his heart. He thought he had turned the handle and the mistake cost him his life.


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:
