Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

9 October, 1886  


At the Church of St. Francis, Glasgow, on Sunday evening; the Rev. M. B. McConville, of Lurgan, co. Armagh, made an eloquent appeal for aid in the task which he has undertaken of founding an Industrial School and Orphanage in that town, in the course of which he showed the great want of such an institution in Lurgan and its vicinity, especially for female children.


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:
