Armagh Robinson Library

Armagh Robinson Library, the oldest library in Northern Ireland, was founded in 1771 by Archbishop Richard Robinson as part of his plans to establish a university and to improve the city of Armagh. Built to the design of Thomas Cooley, the building has housed both the Library and the Library Keeper's residence from the start. Over the public entrance an inscription in Greek reads "the healing place of the soul".
