Granemore (from Irish: Grainseach mor, meaning "great grange") is a townland of 785 acres in County Armagh, Northern Ireland, about seven miles from Armagh and three miles from Keady. It is situated in the civil parish of Keady and historic barony of Armagh.
The local pub, The Rock Bar, was attacked by loyalists in June 1976 in a planned gun and bomb attack. However, a local resident left the bar as the loyalists were planting their device and disrupted their plan. Although the local man was shot a number of times, he managed to survive the incident. It was later revealed that some members of the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) police force from Keady were involved with the attack.
