ArmaghResources4RE.org is managed by the Armagh Diocesan Board of Religious Education.
The Church of Ireland is an autonomous province of the Anglican Communion. The Diocese of Armagh is situated in the northeast of Ireland and is the seat of the Primate of All Ireland, Archbishop Richard Clarke. It is a cross-border diocese stretching from Magherafelt in County Londonderry in the north to Drogheda in County Louth in the south. Principally a rural diocese: larger urban parishes are centred in the towns of Armagh, Dungannon, Portadown, Cookstown, Magherafelt, Drogheda and Dundalk.
The Armagh Diocesan Board of Religious Education is accountable to the Archbishop and exists to support and promote the teaching of religious education in schools within the diocese. The Board comprises clergy and lay members who have substantial experience in teaching and educational administration.
Members of the Board visit schools and engage with Religious Education teachers, providing assistance and advice.
