Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

6 September, 1872  


The seven persons charged with the murder of James M'Cullagh, whose body, was found in the river near Lurgan, in the month of February Inst, were brought up at Moira adjourned special sessions on June 17th. A man named John Hodges was charged by the court with having been an accessory after the fact. After a great deal of evidence had been given the court discharged all of the prisoners as the Crown stated that there was insufficient evidence to warrant them in sending the case forward for trial. There was no great excitement.


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:
