Creeveroe (from Irish an Chraobh Rua, meaning "the dull red branch") is a townland in County Armagh, Northern Ireland, about three-and-a-half miles west of Armagh. The townland derives its name from the Cróeb Ruad, one of the three royal houses of Conchobar mac Nessa, legendary king of the Ulaid, at nearby Eamhain Mhacha.
Creeveroe neighbours the townland of Ballyrea, which is famous for Ballyrea Orange Hall and the flute band Ballyrea Boyne Defenders. The Australian poet Victor James William Patrick Daley was born at Creeveroe and used it as his pen name.
