City of Armagh
Armagh (Ard Mhacha in Irish), a city in Northern Ireland with a population of approximately 15,000, is considered the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland, with two cathedrals (both named after St. Patrick). It was granted city status in 1994. It has been part of the District of Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon since 2015, when the former Armagh City and District Council merged with adjoining areas. County Armagh was one of the six traditional counties of Northern Ireland, which are now purely ceremonial (no longer with administrative authority).
Armagh Jewish Community
Based on news reports, a small Jewish community was established in Armagh towards the end of the nineteenth century.(i) However, it does not appear to have survived into the twentieth century.
