To the west of Armagh City lies Navan Fort, the ancient ‘Emain Macha’ of Irish history and legend and one of the earliest provincial capitals of Ulster. It is a large earthwork on top of a drumlin and is thought to be the site of a pagan sanctuary.
In early Irish mythological tales, Emain was the Head Quarters of the Red Branch knights. It is one of a small number of sites identified as a prehistoric provincial capital in early sources. The others are Tara, Knockaulin and Cruachan.
There is a woodland walk at the base of the hill which is suitable for wheelchair users. However, Navan Fort itself has grassy slopes unsuited for wheelchair users and those with difficulty walking.
