Description:
Ardagh () is a village in County Longford, Ireland about from Longford Town. It is located off the N4 road.

There are several important Early Christian sites in and near Ardagh, including the Church of St. Mel. It is suggested that Saint Patrick built a church here in the fifth century and installed Saint Mel as bishop.

Ardagh's Heritage Centre tracks the history of the village, including its literary associations, which include featuring pseudonymously in Oliver Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer, and in a poem by Eavan Boland.

Much of the village was built as an 'Estate Village' in the 19th century, based on a Swiss design, and has received some acclaim for its beauty, being awarded the Prix d'Honneur of the Entente Florale and winning the Irish Tidy Towns Competition on three occasions in 1989, 1996 and 1998.
