Photograph taken on Sunday 7th November 2010 on the unveiling of three new memorials, kindly supplied by Robin Tierney.

 Ballyclare War Memorial Park and Obelisk, Ballynure Road, County Antrim.

Ballyclare War Memorial Park and Obelisk is located at Ballynure Road. The park  was formally dedicated by His Grace the Duke of Abercorn, K.G., K.P., Governor of Northern Ireland. The gate opening ceremony was performed by Mrs. Kirkpatrick who was presented with a gold key as a souvenir. When  the gates were opened she was the first to past through, followed by the members of the Council and the War Memorial Committee.
The park consists of about five acres. Facing the entrance gates is a  simple but dignified Cenotaph, upon which are inscribed the names of the 92 gallant men in whose memory it has been erected. There was also  provision for a children’s play park in the plans.
The gates in the photograph are not the original ones.
The inscription is:-

IN HONOURED MEMORY OF THE MEN FROM BALLYCLARE & DISTRICT WHO GAVE  THEIR LIVES FOR KING AND COUNTRY IN THE GREAT WAR 1914 - 1918.
“Look not on this in sorrow, but in pride, and may ye live as nobly as they died.”
Roll of Honour.
