Coleraine War Memorial is located in the Diamond.
‘Provided at a cost of £1,800 the memorial stands on the Diamond facing east, and perpetuates in an exceedingly appropriate form the splendid part which the manhood of Coleraine played in the Great War.

‘It is columnar in form, and is built on a grey granite base and step, on which rises a shaft of fine Portland Stone to a height of fifteen feet. Surmounting this pedestal is a bronze, statue of a solder in full fighting kit, making the total height of the memorial 21 feet 6 inches. On the sides and back of the pedestal are cut the names of the 171 men who died in the war, and on the front there is the following inscription;-


“In grateful memory of the men of Coleraine who laid down their lives in the great   war, 1914-1918.” 
“Their name liveth for evermore.


 
Below and standing on a granite plinth is a female figure in bronze, representing a daughter of Erin placing a wreath in loving remembrance.
