ABOUT ARMAGH COUNTY
Known as “Orchard County” because of the many apple orchards spread across its hundreds of acres, Armagh was also listed as the most militarized region in Western Europe and given the name “Bandit Country”.
The county’s name is derived from the town of its county, Armagh – a tiny town of just over 15,000 residents. Armagh Town was founded by the patron saint of Ireland, St. Patrick, in the mid-400s and built the main place of Christianity in St. Patrick’s Church of Ireland Cathedral.
Armagh may be Northern Ireland’s smallest county however, what it is lacking in terms of land, the county more than makes its way through with inspiring places to go to and fascinating things to do. Famous places in Armagh include St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Ring of Gullion, Tannaghmore Farm and Gardens, Brownlow House and Lurgan Park, and Palace Stables Heritage Centre.

There are many factors that’ll have an impact on your power consumption and time to charge.
How long it takes to charge your electric car really depends on the type of charging station and your car model. Driving style, traffic speed and road conditions all have an impact on power consumption.
The average electricity fee at night is about €0,095 per kWh in Ireland at night (consumer rate). Let’s say your electric car has an empty battery and approximately 40 kWh capacity. Depending on your driving style, your car should be able to reach approximately 280 to 320 km on a single charge. Charging your electric car would cost a total of 40 x 0.095 = €3.80. This means that the power consumption per 100 kilometres is just around €1,24-1,28.
Yes and no. Just like regular electricity outlets, charging stations may have different outlets and connectors depending on the country where you’re charging and your car brand’s origin. Luckily, to make things less complicated, car manufacturers and most countries have now reduced the options to just 2 types of outlets and connectors. From the car’s side, a Type 1 socket is common for Japanese and American vehicles, and a Type 2 socket is common for European vehicles. Note: all Tesla models have a specific type of socket in the US, whereas in Europe, all Tesla models are equipped with a Type 2 socket. From the charging station’s side, all chargers in both Europe and the US are equipped with a Type 2 socket. A charging station with a fixed cable is an exception; in this case, you would always have to check if the attached cable fits into your car’s socket.
Very little. Despite being an advanced technology, electric cars are remarkably simple to maintain. The same is true for EV charging stations. If installed properly and built modularly, every piece can be easily replaced. Charging stations with online connectivity also enable remote diagnostics and repair, so you won’t be left stranded in the rare event of charger malfunction
Yes, of course. Electric vehicles can definitely be charged in the rain as proper covering shields and protective layers are applied to the charging plugs and charging stations. That prevents any kind of sparks, current loss, water mixing or short circuit.
