War Memorial at Glynn
War Memorial at Glynn
Glynn War Memorial is located on the open space in the centre of Glynn village, at the junction of Main Road and Glenburn Road. The side facing the main Belfast to Larne road (the A2) carries the inscription:

“All ye who pass by remember with gratitude the men of Glynn, Maghermorne, and Raloo, who fell in the Great War 1914-1918.”

Other sides of the memorial bear the names of the twenty-six men from the district who were killed during the Great War (LinkExternal link War Memorials Online).
The A2 in Northern Ireland

The A2 in Northern Ireland is a major road which runs for 239 miles from the border crossing at Muff (where it becomes the Irish Regional Road R238) to Newry in County Down. A considerable length of the route is often referred to the Antrim Coast Road because much of it follows the scenic coastline of County Antrim; other parts of the road follow the coasts in Counties Down and Londonderry.
