Armagh fire 1

Fire crews are currently tackling a blaze at a popular Armagh bar this morning (Monday).

Emergency services are in attendance at The Northern Bar on Railway Street.

Smoke can be seen billowing from the building, however, the severity of the fire remains unknown at this early stage.

Traffic is building in the area so motorists are best advised to avoid the area around the Moy/Loughgall Roads.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Due to a fire at a building, Railway Street and Lonsdale Road in Armagh are closed. Diversions are in place and motorists are asked to seek alternative routes.”
