Portadown is a small town in County Armagh in Northern Ireland. Standing at the south tip of Lough Neagh, it was traditionally a linen-processing town that became a railway hub in the 19th century. In the late 20th century it was a flashpoint for "The Troubles", with a steel wall dividing embittered Catholic and Protestant sections of the community. This arose from the "Drumcree conflict", about the rights of Orange Order parades to bang their drums along a particular route, as they had since 1807 when those districts were farmland and the cows didn't much object, and to continue doing so although (and perhaps especially because) these were now housing estates with a mostly Catholic population. That conflict was dampened by the Good Friday Agreement between Britain and the Republic of Ireland.
