Remembering the fallen in ceremony at war memorial

Lurgan will pause to remember the fallen in one of the most poignant Remembrance Day services in many years.

For not only does Sunday fall on November 11 (Armistice Day) but it also marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War one.

And Sunday’s service will also be the first since the rededication of the town’s war memorial - following the addition of 242 names of those killed in the two world wars.

The parade will be leaving Union Street at 10.15am. After the wreath laying everyone is welcome in Shankill Parish Church for a service of Remembrance.

The Royal British Legion invite everyone to join them at the War Memorial after the Church Service to hear the Church bells ringing to celebrate the end of the Great War.
