Untitled[edit]

Before we start a revert war lets; 1) discuss it and how disagreements can be resolved, 2) "the Troubles" are more complicated than simply the presence of "the British" and theirfore we should refain from implying that this is the only reason for a military presence, and 3) their is more to the county than simply a military presence and theirfore we should seek balance.

By the way my edit summary, for the article, should of been "move towards npov". Djegan 22:19, 29 September 2005 (UTC)

County crest in irish? Any crest should have the words in English primarily. 86.131.202.57 23:05, 30 October 2005 (UTC)

It should be in English but lets not go there, more importantly I'm not entirely sure this is actually the county crest. The City & District council use a different one & a google search brings up similar but different versions. I think the actual, or perhaps historical, county crest is a harp on a plain backround as seem on Bank of Ireland sterling bank notes.

Well i know its not the county crest, its the crest of the county GAA board. Any county crest that you would find for any of the counties in NI are going to be historical crest, being that currrently non of the counties in NI have a political status/structure , ulink their counterparts in the Republic, to take a crest from. --Boothy443 | trácht ar 06:50, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

The crest is in English, not Gaelic. The alternative would be delusional. Woodstockrocker 10:20, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

How exactly would this be delusional? This county is after all in Northern Ireland, not in Northern England. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.165.195.244 (talk) 20:32, 26 March 2008 (UTC)



Does anyone know what the old County Arms was / still is for lieutenancy purposes? e.g. that with the Harp (i.e. http://www.triskelle.eu/tourism/todoarmagh.php) or that with blue background (i.e. Armagh arms.svg). I'm not sure that the latter is necessarily that of the GAA Armgah County Board given that they use a different one (NonFreeImageRemoved.svg). I'd like to redo the article and would like to get the Coat of Arms up given that Tyrone, etc, have one. Thanks (User:Deathpool4}

Population of County Armagh in the 2011 UK Census[edit]

Whilst one must be cautious when one speaks about population figures for any of Northern Ireland's counties (because data are no longer collected on a county basis), a relatively reliable estimate can be made using the figures and maps provided by the Ordnance Survey and the figures from the 2011 Census freely available from NISRA.gov.uk. As an overview, many Local Government Areas' boundaries (drawn up in the 1970s) fall into line with the old county structure (eg. Armagh City & District Council area lies entirely within the bounds of County Armagh). Where this is not the case, Electoral Wards prove an invaluable agent to plug the gaps (eg. Craigavon Borough Council is mostly in County Armagh, but some parts of the eastern and southeastern rural hinterland are in County Down; Donaghcloney is one such electoral ward - Donaghcloney is in Co. Down but is administered as part of Craigavon Borough Council area). Sometimes the electoral ward boundaries were drawn (or in other cases redrawn) in such a way that they are split by counties. In this instance one can use the Census Output Areas (or their new 2011 equivalent: the Small Area which are almost always synonomous with one another) to break up the Electoral Ward into its constituent parts (eg. the Small Area N00002882 (previously known as Census Output Area 95OO170004) is in County Armagh, but also forms part of Killyman Electoral Ward, which is part of Dungannon and South Tyrone District Council area - most of the Killyman Electoral Ward are in County Tyrone). On the rare occassion that the borders of the Small Area/Census Output Area are not in line with the old County boundaries, I have either chosen or excluded any given area depending on where most of the Small Area lies and where most of the population of that given area live (eg. Small Area N00002331 (formerly the old Census Output Area 95LL190007) is split between Counties Armagh and Down, but one can see on NISRA maps that well over 2/3 of the land and roughly the same fraction (if not more) of the population reside on the County Armagh side of the old county boundary - the rest ofMagheralin Electoral Ward is in County Down). Thus insofar as possible I have only included those statistical areas that lie within the County Boundaries in order to arrive at the figure of 174,792. I must stress that this is only an approximate figure as certain Small Areas have been included in the 174,792 figure which have small amounts of territory outside of the county, and some Small Areas which have portions of themselves within County Armagh have been excluded because most of the Small Area lies in another County. In all, these factors may well even each other out. Nonetheless, the actual figure could be out by a hundred or so. If anyone has any queries or suggestions please get in contact.
