History journal launches

The 12th edition of the Poyntzpass Local History Journal will be launched by Councillor Sharon Haughey-Grimley on Friday, November 8 at 8pm.

The venue will be the Meeting Place, Poyntzpass. The title of this year’s journal, is ‘Before I Forget...’.

The Lord Mayor of Armagh will visit the village earlier to receive his copy of the magazine. The journal has been very popular and its last edition sold well over a thousand copies. One of its more sensational articles describes the gruesome murder of Loughbrickland-born Alice McClory at the hands of her daughter’s lover! The cover recalls the glory days of ‘the dealing men’ of Poyntzpass and neighbouring areas.

Everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served.
