In the county of Armagh, is sixty-seven miles, north-by-west of Dublin, seventeen south-west of Belfast, fourteen north-north-east of Armagh, seven north-by-east of Tanderagee, and five north-east of Portadown. It is a handsome, well built town, principally consisting of one wide street, which is well paved and remarkably clean. The church is a fine stoned building, ornamented with a handsome spire, which gives it a dignified appearance; the interior is no less beautiful and has an excellent organ. The Catholics, Presbyterians, Quakers and Methodists have each a place of worship. The court-house is a handsome stone building near the church. A school, which has been established here, is supported by subscriptions and an annual charity sermon; it educates upwards of two hundred children. The patron of Lurgan is Charles Brownlow, Esq., M.P., whose mansion and beautiful demesne adjoin the town; the former is a very ancient building, which has received many alterations and additions; the latter, which is always open to the inhabitants, is ornamented with rich plantations and a fine sheet of water, which abounds with various species of water fowl, and is surrounded by a broad gravel walk. Lurgan is a thriving town, and is well situated for trade being within two miles of Lough Neagh. It has two noted breweries, an extensive distillery lately built by Messrs. Greer and Boyd.
