Other things to note
Located in an area of immense historical significance and in the heart of ancient Oriel, this is an area which captivated the O’Neill’s who once had a castle situated by Glassdrummond Lake. This part of south Armagh was also a hive for Gaelic poetry and literature and home to Art Mc Cooey, author of the renowned lament ‘Úirchill an Chreagáin’.
