County Armagh in the province of Ulster is one of the six counties that make up Northern Ireland. It covers an area of 1,326 square kilometres and has a population of about 174,792.
The area is known as The Orchard County due to the many apple orchards. The south of the county is rugged and hilly with Carrigatuke, Lislea, and Camlough Mountains as well as Slieve Gullion, the county’s highest point.
The county takes its name from the town of Ard Macha, the Irish word for Macha’s Height, thought to be an ancient king who built a site at what is now Navan Fort.
