In this week’s Lurgan Mail we hear one man’s heartbreaking tale of how he had to bury a baby in a shoebox in an unmarked grave on the outskirts of a Lurgan cemetery because of the Catholic Church’s refusal to bury babies who hadn’t been baptised.

We’ve a full-page feature on the shame of unmarked graves for un-baptised babies including a response from the Catholic Church.

Elsewhere we report on a new school for Lismore, an assault during a farm break-in and another blow to Lurgan Hospital.

There’s plenty on the entertainments scene including a report on a flash mob who invaded our office, a talent contest in Craigavon, the county fleadh in Lurgan, a drama showcase in Portadown and a local band who won a busking competition in Banbridge.

We’ve also got a ticket giveaway for an outdoor concert in Lurgan this Saturday night.
