Glynn, County Antrim
Glynn War Memorial is located on the open space in the centre of Glynn village, at the junction of Main Road (A2) and  Glenburn Road. The memorial is a very handsome obelisk, designed and  erected by Mr. T. Hastings, of Downpatrick, County Down. The side facing the main Belfast-Larne road bears the arresting inscription-

“All ye who pass by remember with gratitude the men of Glynn, Maghermorne, and Raloo, who fell in the Great War.”

Other sides of the memorial bear the names of the twenty-six men from the district who made the supreme sacrifice.
