In this week’s Times we report on the fears over the main Portadown to Armagh road after two serious crashes at the same place in the space of 48 hours.

We reveal the identity of our Portadown Person to be Proud of competition winner and report on the local school featuring on a list of schools with the highest number of pupil absentees.

We report on the start of Portadown Festival, with the Speech Festival under way and the Drama Festival to follow.

We also have big coverage Ulster Carpets, who are celebrating their 75th anniversary, as they held a gala dinner. There are also pictures from Mullahead Ploughing Championships and Battlehill Band’s concert held at Tandragee Junior High School. In sport there is support for Portadown manager Ronnie McFall from his players.
