Armagh City boasts an amazing history, a strong architectural heritage, a world renowned observatory and is an important ecclesiastical centre. The Tandragee 100 event takes place in the Shallow hills of County Armagh that plays host to a number of successful cultural and sporting events. Unlike bigger cities such as Belfast and Londonderry, it also offers quiet and tranquillity, an easy escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life. In springtime, the North Armagh countryside is awash with pink blossoms. Apart from the scenic qualities, the associated produce is outstanding with a number of the ciders produced locally being international award winners. As part of this Food Heartland – some of our local Sponsors include Groucho’s in Richhill who promotes specialist artisan food and drink (including the Armagh Apple products); Ballylisk of Armagh (artisan cheese producer) and one of the unique and internationally renowned products is also one of our Sponsors: Tayto Ltd (world famous Tayto Castle, Tandragee), who have been with us since our first race in 1958.
