town in County Armagh, Northern Ireland
city in Northern Ireland
Armagh is an historical city where St Patrick built his first stone church in 432 AD and where a church has stood ever since. Today that church is Saint Patrick's Church of Ireland Cathedral, the seat of the Archbishop & Primate of All Ireland (Church of Ireland). On the neighbouring hilltop stands the twin spires of the magnificent 19th century St Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral, the seat of the Archbishop & Primate of All Ireland (Roman Catholic Church).
This city is known today as the Ecclesiastical Capital of Ireland, in other words, the home of the heads of the two main churches in Ireland! Pilgrims travel from all over the world to visit this small city with two cathedrals both dedicated to Saint Patrick!
