12-16 Main Street

This   little row of tastefully renovated terraced cottages appears on a map of   around 1830, so they are some of the oldest houses in the village. The   occupations of the people who lived in them in the early 1900s include   postman, gardener, agricultural labourer, army pensioner and domestic   servant. As with all the other tenanted houses in Loughgall they kept   changing hands on a regular basis. However they are now private family homes.   Mrs Daisy Henderson, who lived here with her large extended family until she   passed away in 2003 at the age of 82, always had one up on her husband as she   could boast about cycling across the frozen lake in her youth while he had   only ever been able to swim across it. Neither is to be recommended today   however!
