The Jetty at Maghery Co Armagh
Maghery (from Irish: an Machaire meaning “the plain”) is a small village and townland in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. It lies on the southwest shore of Lough Neagh in the parish of Loughgall. As it sits between the estuaries of the rivers Blackwater and Bann (which are only two miles apart), Maghery was of strategic significance in the past.
Maghery Christian Heritage Site
In the Maghery area there is a tradition of an ancient road between Armagh and Coney Island known as St Patrick’s Trail, which in the past facilitated travel through Armagh to the north and the south of the county via causeways. Various stretches of this trail have also been identified in the neighbouring townland of Derrylileagh as well as a number of others in the locality.
