Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

25 June, 1907  


A "wake" was in progress in a cottage near Lurgan (Ireland) for a man named Toman, when the building was blown down during a severe gale, and the mourners and the body were buried in the debris. Fire broke out owing to the smashing of a lamp in the wreckage. It was extinguished by neighbours, who then dug out the mourners. The latter were severely injured, one woman had a broken leg, and another person received severe internal injuries, two people were badly burned and the body was much disfigured when recovered six hours later.


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:
