Aonach Mhacha is situated in the historic heart of Armagh city and opened as a landmark Irish language, arts and cultural hub in March 2020. A number of Irish language organisations will base their offices in the new centre including CAIRDE Teo; Gael Linn; Macha Media, SEACHT, Ionad Churam Lae Ard Mhacha and Armagh Rhymers. The centre will also include a café and shop, classrooms, incubation units for new cultural enterprises, exhibition space and a small theatre which will meet the needs of the Irish language community.
Aonach Mhacha aims to develop and deliver a series of cultural and community projects which will be additional to the activities carried out by the anchor tenants. These will include language classes, social enterprise training, cultural tourism events, art and cultural heritage exhibitions, concerts, festivals, musical and dance performances, workshops, seminars and community development initiatives.
Aonach Mhacha required a brand new website to help raise awareness of the centre and provide a centralised point of reference and source of information on the range of services, information and events available to the community.
