The famous ‘Keep Calm’ range with an Irish twist featuring County Armagh.
Armagh derives from the Irish word Ard meaning “height” and Macha, together meaning “height” (or high place). It is one of the 32 traditional counties of Ireland, situated in the northeast of the island. Adjoined to the southern shore of Lough Neagh, the county covers an area of 1,326 km² and has a population of about 174,792. It is within the historic province of Ulster. The county is known as the “Orchard County” because of its many apple orchards.
From its highest point at Slieve Gullion, in the south of the County, Armagh’s land falls away from its rugged south with Carrigatuke, Lislea and Camlough mountains, to rolling drumlin country in the middle and west of the county and finally flatlands in the north where rolling flats and small hills reach sea level at Lough Neagh.
The county boundary with Louth is marked by the rugged Ring of Gullion rising in the south of the county whilst much of its boundary with Monaghan and Down goes unnoticed with seamless continuance of drumlins and small lakes. The River Blackwater marks the border with County Tyrone and Lough Neagh otherwise marks out the County’s northern boundary.
