Synopsis

The Ulster Tourist Development Association declared in 1935 that 'Armagh is perhaps the most important county in Ulster from the tourist's point of view'. It is certainly the case that much of Ulster's colourful early history has taken place in and around the ancient ecclesiastical settlement of Armagh. Although one of the smallest counties in Ireland, it is steeped in myth and legend, and its association with Saint Patrick secured for Armagh the position of the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland. Armagh: A History & Guide takes a detailed look at the often turbulent history of the county, and provides a guide to its rich archaeological and architectural heritage. Drawing on a wide variety of sources, this comprehensive guide to County Armagh is as fascinationg as the location it describes and will appeal to residents and tourists alike.
