The Cathedral of St. Patrick (Roman Catholic) is the twin-spired
cathedral built in the mid 1800's. The interior is Byzantine with
representations of every Irish saint and many angels decorating it.
Walk out the front door and down the steps of the cathedral to the small
graveyard and view the magnificent high crosses and other markers.
Saint Patrick's, Anglican is beautiful and historic.
Armagh Ancestry, a genealogical research center for Co. Armagh, is
located next to St. Patrick's Trian. At this writing (1998) it was open
Monday through Saturday. Definitely worth a visit if you have Armagh
St. Patrick's Trian is an interpretive center located on English Street
comprised of audiovisual shows on the Armagh story (history of St.
Patrick, belief, and pagan religious customs). There is also a Land of

Other sites in Armagh City and surrounds are Navan Fort (Emain Macha)
