Etymology The name "Armagh" derives from the Irish word Ard meaning "height" (or high place) and Macha. Macha
Macha
is mentioned in The Book of the Taking of Ireland, and is also said to have been responsible for the construction of the hill site of Emain Macha
Macha
(now Navan Fort
Navan Fort
near Armagh
Armagh
City) to serve as the capital of the Ulaid
Ulaid
kings (who give their name to Ulster), also thought to be Macha's height. Geography and features From its highest point at Slieve Gullion, in the south of the County, Armagh's land falls away from its rugged south with Carrigatuke, Lislea and Camlough
Camlough
mountains, to rolling drumlin country in the middle and west of the county and finally flatlands in the north where rolling flats and small hills reach sea level at Lough Neagh.

County Armagh's boundary with Louth is marked by the rugged Ring of Gullion rising in the south of the county whilst much of its boundary with Monaghan and Down goes unnoticed with seamless continuance of drumlins and small lakes. The River Blackwater marks the border with County Tyrone
County Tyrone
and Lough Neagh
Lough Neagh
otherwise marks out the County's northern boundary. There are also a number of uninhabited islands in the county's section of Lough Neagh: Coney Island Flat, Croaghan Flat, Padian, Phil Roe's Flat and the Shallow Flat. Climate Despite lying in the east of Ireland, Armagh
Armagh
enjoys an oceanic climate strongly influenced by the Gulf Stream with damp mild winters, and temperate, wet summers. Overall temperatures rarely drop below freezing during daylight hours, though frost is not infrequent in the months November to February. Snow rarely lies for longer than a few hours even in the elevated south-east of the County. Summers are mild and wet and although with sunshine often interspersed with showers, daylight lasts for almost 18 hours during high-summer.

Ancient Armagh
Armagh
was the territory of the Ulaid
Ulaid
(also known as Voluntii, Ultonians, Ulidians, Ulstermen) before the fourth century AD. It was ruled by the Red Branch, whose capital was Emain Macha
Macha
(or Navan Fort) near Armagh. The site, and subsequently the city, were named after the goddess Macha. The Red Branch play an important role in the Ulster Cycle, as well as the Cattle Raid of Cooley. However, they were eventually driven out of the area by the Three Collas, who invaded in the 4th century and held power until the 12th. The Clan Colla ruled the area known as Airghialla or Oriel for these 800 years. The chief Irish septs of the county were descendants of the Collas, the O'Hanlons and MacCanns, and the Uí Néill, the O'Neills of Fews. Armagh
Armagh
was divided into several baronies: Armagh
Armagh
was held by the O'Rogans, Lower Fews was held by O'Neill of the Fews, and Upper Fews were under governance of the O'Larkins, who were later displaced by the MacCanns. Oneilland East
Oneilland East
was the territory of the O'Garveys, who were also displaced by the MacCanns. Oneilland West, like Oneilland East, was once O'Neill territory, until it was then held by the MacCanns, who were Lords of Clanbrassil. Upper and Lower Orior were O'Hanlon territory. Tiranny
Tiranny
was ruled by Ronaghan. Miscellaneous tracts of land were ruled by O'Kelaghan. The area around the base of Slieve Guillion near Newry
Newry
also became home to a large number of the McGuinness clan as they were dispossessed of hereditary lands held in the County Down. Armagh
Armagh
was the seat of St. Patrick, and the Catholic Church
Catholic Church
continues to be his see. County Armagh
Armagh
is presently one of four counties of Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland
to have a majority of the population from a Catholic background, according to the 2011 census. The Troubles The southern part of the County has been a stronghold of support for the IRA, earning it the nickname "Bandit Country" though this is widely regarded as an untrue media label that has resulted in the vilification and demonisation of the local community.[13] South Armagh is predominantly nationalist, with most of the population being opposed to any form of British presence, especially that of a military nature. See Provisional IRA South Armagh
Armagh
Brigade for further information. On 10 March 2009, the CIRA claimed responsibility for the fatal shooting of a PSNI officer in Craigavon, County Armagh—the first police fatality in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland
since 1998. The officer was fatally shot by a sniper as he and a colleague investigated "suspicious activity" at a house nearby when a window was smashed by youths causing the occupant to phone the police. The PSNI officers responded to the emergency call, giving a CIRA sniper the chance to shoot and kill officer Stephen Carroll.[14][15] Administration County Armagh
Armagh
is no longer used as an administrative district for local Government purposes; however, it remains officially used for purposes such as a Lieutenancy area
Lieutenancy area
– the county retains a lord lieutenant who acts as representative of the British Monarch
British Monarch
in the County.[16] County Armagh
Armagh
ceased to serve as a local government unit in 1973. Currently the county is covered for local government purposes by four district councils, namely Armagh
Armagh
City and District Council, most of Craigavon
Craigavon
Borough Council, approximately the western third of Newry and Mourne District Council and a part of Dungannon
Dungannon
and South Tyrone Borough Council, centred around Peatlands Park. With the proposed reform of local government in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland
in 2011, County Armagh
Armagh
would have comprised part of two new council areas, Armagh
Armagh
City and Bann District, and Newry
Newry
City and Down; however, that reform has not proceeded to date. Armagh
Armagh
ceased to serve as an electoral constituency in 1983, but remains the core of the Newry

and Armagh
Armagh
constituency represented at Westminster and the Newry

constituency represented in the Northern Ireland

also remains as a district for legal and property purposes; however, its baronies no longer have any administrative use. The -XZ suffix is currently used on vehicle registration plates for vehicles registered in County Armagh. Settlements Main article: List of places in County Armagh
