Armagh history


Eamhain Mhacha (or Navan Fort) was one of the great royal sites of Gaelic Ireland and the capital of Ulster. Evidence suggests that it was a pagan sanctuary and the successor to Navan. Like Navan, it too was named after the goddess Macha, meaning “Macha’s height” Armagh became the site of an important church and monastery.

Medieval era

Armagh was at the heart of the kingdom of the Airthir, a part of the Airgíalla federation. By the 7th century, Armagh had become the most important church, monastery and monastic school in the north of Ireland. The Book of Armagh contains some of the oldest surviving specimens of Old Irish.

Early modern era

Armagh was strategically important as it lay between the English Pale and the O’Neill heartland of Tyrone. In the 1560s, English troops under Thomas Radclyffe occupied and fortified the town. After the Battle of the Yellow Ford in 1598, the routed English army took refuge at Armagh. By the end of the Nine Years’ War, Armagh lay in ruins and the cathedral was rebuilt.

Modern era

Armagh has been an educational centre since the time of Saint Patrick. The educational tradition continued with the foundation of the Royal School in 1608, St Patrick’s College in 1834 and the Armagh Observatory in 1790. During the Troubles in Armagh, the violence was substantial enough for the city to be referred to as “Murder Mile”
