Armagh Rugby

City of Armagh Rugby Club is one of the oldest clubs in Ireland. Records exist of games being played in the early 1870’s but the accepted date of the club’s foundation is 1875.
Playing their games at The Mall was never ideal and, as the only senior club outside Belfast at the time, where constantly put under pressure to play their games at the 'Asylum Grounds'.
In 1964 the pavilion at The Mall was built to accommodate both Rugby and Cricket, but once the Palace grounds became available the club eagerly moved, with the first game being played on 8 September 1973.
Over the years, City of Armagh have been very successful and have won The Mall trophy on several occasions.
An interesting fixture in the clubs history was a visit by Armagh to play Bath at The Rec in 1975. The home side managed a tight win over Armagh who impressed on the day. This was a return of a friendly between Armagh and Bath at The Mall several years before.
