This latest event run in collaboration with Armagh Churches involves a tour of local churches, designed to appreciate the rich legacy of the town’s fine ecclesiastical heritage, followed by an informative talk aimed at how best to maintain these buildings for future generations.
We hope that Glebe Wardens, Vergers, Sextons and Property Stewards will find this particularly helpful.
