Armagh is a nice enough town, wee bit to do about it and few nice restaurants.

Really?
Never had that happen in over 40 years of visiting the town...

The folk park us dull, a visit to Asda in Strabane is much more entertaining,

Getting that smug sense of self-satisfaction that you only get when your AH thread is still alive the day after.

This must be the same feeling the 32 county club among us must feel

Armagh town (“city”) is really lovely. Full of history and of course the brilliant planetarium (the only one on the island of Ireland) and observatory. I think of Armagh town as a sort of Kilkenny of the North.

And my great-grandmother harked from Armagh too.

Portadown is a horrible miserable dump of a place. Best avoided...

And yet there is a palpable absent of this club on this thread, wonder why that is?

Can anyone tell me a decent reason to visit. And also... are you in that same 31 county dilemma. Bonus point for Armagh being the one that got away.

I feel like there's a prize for "finishing" Ireland


Maybe a united ireland?
Wheareabouts are you from? If you're from Dublin, from example, how would you get to Antrim or Down without travelling through Armagh?

Armagh City is the Ecclesiastical Capital of Ireland. So highly important from a religious point of view. The 2 cathedral’s are worth a visit if that floats your boat.
