There are atleast five pumps in Loughbrickland village. The most interesting is a Paragon pump which stands in the fornt garden of the Main Street. It is inscribed with a flag symbol and is probably made by Lee, Howl & Co, Staffordshire.
A short distance south of this is a pump with a large head but no inscriptions. It stands on private property but is easily viewed from the street.
A short distance in the opposite direction, again in a front garden, is a small Joseph Evans pump.
At either end of the village is a standard cowtail pump.The pump on the Scarva Road has a missing spout and the lid is a poor replacement for the original. The pump on the Dublin Road is it better condition but also has a replacement lid which makes no attempt to mimic the original
