County Armagh (Ard Mhacha in Irish) is a county on the island of Ireland. County Armagh is known by some as the Orchard of Ireland because the land is so fertile. Its main town is Armagh.

The Southern Part of Armagh (South Armagh) is the most militarized region in Western Europe due to a history of tensions between nationalists and unionists in the area.
