Linen and Handkerchief and Manufacturers

Taghnevan, Lurgan.


McCaw Allan’s handkerchief and linen factory at Taghnevan, can be traced back a far as 1830 when the McCaw family set up a small linen business in the townland of Taghnevan. This location was very important to the McCaw`s as Lurgan had one of the main linen markets in Ireland at this time and was only a mile or so from the market town of Lurgan.
