|The 'Gap o' the North,' Armagh/Monaghan border|
County Armagh is famous for growing apples - there are orchards all over the county. But of course, the thing most people think of when ye mention Armagh is south Armagh, which is on the border and famous - or infamous - for a lot of things, including smuggling.
The three man Boundary Commission travelled all over the border areas in 1924/25, taking submissions, but ended up only recommending one Catholic town, Crossmaglen, in Co. Armagh, for transfer. Leaks of this report in 1925 caused a political crisis in the south and in the end, the border was kept pretty much as it had been. As they said at the time, "the Boundary Commission: surveyed a lot, proposed little and achieved nothing!"
