Aughnacloy (1859)



At Aughnacloy the servants of God had been anxiously and prayerfully looking for a share in these blessings, and on July 5th a young man who had been stricken a few days previously on his way home from the market delivered an address at a place about two miles from the town; the power of the Lord descended on the people, and about eight or ten persons were smitten to the ground. So loud and bitter were their cries that they were heard afar off, and a young man at a distance, hearing them, was himself seized with conviction of sin, and cried aloud for mercy. The work thus begun soon spread, until the country around was all on fire.
