Armagh City

Armagh City

Armagh, as the ecclesiastical center of Ireland, is the home of both Catholic and Protestant archbishops. In the 5th century St. Patrick came to Ireland and built his first stone church on a hill here. There are two St. Patrick's cathedrals - one is Church of Ireland and the other Roman Catholic. The site where St. Patrick built his first stone church is now the Church of Ireland Cathedral.
