Welcome to West Armagh - About Us

Welcome to the West Armagh Consortium's website. We hope that you will find this both interesting and informative. We would like to take this opportunity to give the reader some background to us.

The West Armagh Consortium (WAC) was constituted in November 2002 as a voluntary amalgamation of local community groups from Armagh City West. As a non-sectarian and politically unaffiliated umbrella organisation, the Consortium welcomes affiliations from all new and existing community and voluntary groups in our catchment area. The groups currently affiliated represent districts within the three electoral wards of Abbey Park, Callanbridge and Downs.


It is well know that most people who smoke do want to give it up. The health hazzards are well documented and added to that, now is the social aspect for smokers who find it increasingly difficult to find smoking designated areas. The WAC, working with Public Health Agency will be delivering a smoking cessation programme at the WAC Healthy Living Centre , Sherry Field Recreational Centre.This is an update on a prevous programme originally planned last year  which unfortnately could not be delivered at that time. The programme will consist of a workshop encouraging participants to adopt a programme for non-smoking that will be followed up with secondary meetings to chart progress. The frequency of those meetings will be determined at the initial meeting of the participants.

If you are interested in taking part in this programme contact Nora at the WAC office or Stephen on 07759949314.The health benefits of giving up the 'dreaded weed' are increasingly complemented by the financial benefits, that improve with every increase in tobacco taxation.
