Armagh is a town of circa 25,000 in Northern Ireland – one of the four UK nations – located some 20 mi from the border with the Republic of Ireland (RoI). Armagh is considered the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland, was given city status in 1994 and is home to two cathedrals (both named St Patrick’s!). Travel to and from Armagh is served by three major airports, Dublin International (DUB; 90 min by car), Belfast International (BFS; 45 min by car) and Belfast City (BHD; 70 min by car). Many low-cost flights are available to these airports. Regular bus services exist between Armagh and Belfast or Dublin.

A social programme will be available following the meeting.
