Saint Patrick's Trian Visitor ComplexArmagh City Armagh - Northern Ireland
Saint Patrick's Trian is an exciting visitor complex located in the heart of the histroric Cathedral City of Armagh. The centre derives its name from the ancient division of Armagh City into three distinct districts, or 'trians' (pronounced 'tree-an).
The Complex incorporates three major exhibitions. 'The Armagh Story' traces the story of Armagh's development from the stone monuments of pagan times, through to the coming of Saint Patrick and Celtic Christianity, to the modern day City . 'Patrick's Testament' takes a closer look at Ireland's patron saint through the writings found in the ninth century manuscript 'The Book of Armagh'; one of Ireland's most precious historical documents and currently housed in the Library of Trinity College Dublin.
The final exhibition reflects the author Jonathan Swift's associations with the area. The adventures of his famous novel, 'Gulliver's Travels' is narrated by a 20 foot giant in the 'Land of Lilliput'.
Touch screen technology is available in English, French and German.
