And just between me and you he could sign a record deal with a london based record company within the next few months, so keep watching this space!!

  • The wee man outside the bank is a legend. Far more talent than some of the inbreds farting about on the Town Hall stage on Fridays. Get a Taxi!!!
  • the only buskers are the dirty refugees (and i am not talking craigavon people here) with their hands out looking money and their babies lying beside them in their filth crying, thats as close to buskers as you'll get in Lurgan, apart from budgie whistling on the way home from St.Pauls club.
  • big issue sellers from afghanistan
  • the dude with the harmonica beside tescos with the stammer, its great craic to stop and have a feg with him, (cant make out a fucking word he says though)
  • Main street entertainer is DON JOHNSON , second in command is WILLY with his 2 dogs. He walks about pretending he cant talk annoying the fuck out of tescos, iceland, and mc donalds -" ca ca ca ca nnnn ii ii ii ihha aavee aaa aacc ccuu ppp oo oo oooff ff cc ooccoo fffoo fff eeeee, & aa a cccouuuple ooff chc hchhcips
  • i heard ashley ross has entertained many a man in many a street
  • aint none
  • BLACK WILLY of course. and the various ones that sit in the middle of market street with signs round there necks. HIGHLY ENTERTAINING
  • the sad girls and women who go out so desperately looking to pick up anything with a pulse.........its so funny to watch
  • the whole crozier family is there an uglier or funnier sight when they are all out together tom smith loan shark from hell but he is funny when u see him coming from someones house who didnt pay him. the mackeys came to lurgan in caravans with scabies and nits and now they all think they are above the rest of us. but they still got scabies and nits.
  • entertainment is provided by watching the drunks dodge the taxis at 3 oclock on a saturday morning
  • that guy who stands outside heatons and gives you funny looks when you go past then you realise that he is following you.has anyone else noticed that??
  • its ok, i suppose, theres always big issue ppl
  • my on me way home on a sat night like and angle singing "sweetchild of mine" at 3am not to profitable
  • That Guy Neil Cochrane comes in here. He is obviously not of this town, since when did anything with a bit of talent come out of Lurgan? He used to be in the Band TWO POINT THREE but when they split he went his own way and will be hitting the charts next year with his debut album, Keep an eye out. By the way. There are othe rsingers who are from these parts too who will someday make it to the top. Thomas Larkham is extremely talented and will obviously go far. Stephen Mulholland (Stove to those who know him well) has every hance in the world to get there. Chris McAlinden is a great actor and comedian and it would be a crime if he didnt beacoome famous.
  • the big issue dudes or the wee man that sits outside tescos. i would love to be able afford to get him soem speech therapy.

  • the big issue dudes are the street entertainers and the wee man that sits outside tescos playing the harmonica i think you call him black willy. fair play to them
