From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Granemore (Irish: Grainseach Mhór) is a small townland located in County Armagh, Northern Ireland, about seven miles from Armagh and three miles from Keady. It is home to the local Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) club Granemore GFC, which includes both senior and underage football and camogie teams.

The local pub, The Rock Bar, was attacked by loyalists in June 1976 in a planned gun and bomb attack. However, a local resident left the bar as the loyalists were planting their device and disrupted their plan. Although the local man was shot a number of times, he managed to survive the incident. It was later revealed that the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) police force from Keady were involved with the attack.
