Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog is a village and ecclesiastical parish in the rural Ceiriog valley in the County Borough of Wrexham in Wales. It forms part of the community of Ceiriog Ucha, together with Llansanffraid Glyn Ceiriog.

Before 1974 the village was in the historic county of Denbighshire and, between 1874 and 1996 in the County of Clwyd. In 1996 it became part of the modern County Borough of Wrexham.


The parish takes its name from St. Garmon (Latin: Germanus) and, to distinguish it from other parishes of the same name, its location, Dyffryn Ceiriog (English: Ceiriog Valley), has been added.

The parish comprises the townships of Tre'rllan, Llowarch and Lloran. For more information see Llanarmon Dryffryn Cieriog, Denbighshire at genuki.org.uk
