From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Killylea (pronounced /kɪliːˈleɪ/ – from the Irish: Coillidh Léith meaning "grey forest") is a small village and townland in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. In the 2001 Census it had a population of 219 people. It is within the Armagh City and District Council area. The village is set on a hill, with St Mark’s Church of Ireland, built in 1832, at its summit.



Many people have difficulty spelling Killylea, often confusing it with the County Down village of Killyleagh. An easy way to remember is the acronym K I L L Y L E A, standing for Kathryn Is Lovely Like Yellow Leaves Every Autumn.


Killylea Primary School caters for around 80 children between the ages of 4 and 11 from the village of Killylea and the surrounding area.
