On 31st August 1912 the members of the Ballymacash Branch of the Derriaghy Unionist Club marched to Ballymacash House to get photographed, on the invitation of Miss Johnston.

“The fine appearance and marching of the men were highly commented on.” (Lisburn Herald, 7th September 1912)

Do you have any historical material, artefacts or photographs relating to the Ballymacash area that could be photographed or copied for display in the forthcoming exhibition?

Photographs are especially welcome. Were you a member of the Scouts, Guides, Sunday school, choir, church or local social groups? Perhaps you have a photograph of a building or homestead that has now been erased from our landscape during the ongoing development of the area. If so, we would be interested in hearing from you.

“Dear Ballymacash, my native place
In thee I spent my early days,
Though many years have passed since then
It gives me joy to sing your praise...”
