Bishops and Buildings takes a fresh look at Armagh’s architecture and archbishops, using the historical riches in the city’s libraries and museums. It explores the way the Primates of All-Ireland have influenced the city’s heritage-led development and how this has shaped the city’s cherished past.

The rich architectural heritage makes Armagh one of the most important and attractive urban centres in Ireland boasting outstanding museums and libraries with unique treasures that help reveal this fascinating story.

The book was launched in December 2020.
