Pump and Trough

Photographic evidence shows that the original pump and trough were placed here in the early 1900s, probably at the same time as the lower gate to the graveyard was opened. Older residents recall hearing that the trough was moved from elsewhere in the street where it had been used to water horses. The current location was chosen as water was easily drawn to the pump from a nearby well. Unfortunately the original pump disappeared, but thankfully it has now been replaced by a modern replica donated in honour of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 2012, by the Loughgall Jubilee Committee.
