Ballinderry War Memorial Hall is located in North Street, Ballinderry village.
‘The hall was as a permanent remembrance of the brave young men of the district who served, and many of whom gave up their lives, in the great war. The two-storey building, which was designed by Mr. Robert Gibson, C.E., Belfast, is a worthy memorial, and will serve many useful purposes, being commodious adequately equipped.’
Sir Robert H. H. Baird, K.B.E., D.L., on the occasion of his opening Ballinderry Memorial Hall said, ‘In the splendid Ulster Division and other ranks, on sea and land, in many climes the young men of Ballinderry maintained the best traditions of their loyal countryside, and though many of them, alas, sleep the long sleep in Flanders fields where poppy’s grow and in other scenes of terrible combat, they secured for us the glorious peace.’
‘I think you are to be congratulated upon the form which you decided your memorial should take to the glorious dead-and not only them, but the noble band who were spared to return to their homes, not a few bearing the honourable scars of war. This large, handsome, and thoroughly equipped hall will be of practical use to the living for many generations to came, and be a fitting monument so long as one stone shall stand upon another to those in whose honour it has been erected.’
