Crossmaglen

Crossmaglen is a village and townland in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. It had a population of 1,592 in the 2011 Census and is the largest village in South Armagh. The village centre is the site of a large Police Service of Northern Ireland base and formerly of an observation tower (known locally as the "look-out post").The square's name commemorates Cardinal Tomás Ó Fiaich, a local man who became Primate of All Ireland (head of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland), and who died in 1990. However the Cardinal actually originated from Crossmaglen's close neighbours, Cullyhanna. Crossmaglen also gives its name to a famous GAA team.EducationAnamar Primary SchoolClonalig Primary SchoolSt. Brigid's Primary SchoolSt. Patrick's Primary SchoolSt. Joseph's High School, CrossmaglenHistoryOn 13 January 1921, during the Irish War of Independence, the Irish Republican Army (IRA) shot dead an Ulster Special Constabulary (USC) constable in Crossmaglen.
