Blackwatertown is a small village situated on the River Blackwater, in County Armagh close to the border with county Tyrone.

Lying to the west of Armagh City Blackwatertown and the neighbouring village of Charlemont are now of small importance, but in the time when The Earls of Tyrone disputed ownership of Armagh with the English, very important places indeed.

At Blackwatertown there are still to be seen the ramparts of the fort built in the sixteenth century to keep Hugh, Earl of Tyrone, in his own county, on the west bank of the Blackwater River.
