Lisnabreeny WW2 War Memorial to American Fallen

This site was a temporary war cemetery for 140 fallen American soldiers, their remains were repatriated to the US in the early 1950s. Names of the fallen are recorded on the memorial.

Lisnabreeny is located on the hills just south of Belfast overlooking the city. Care is needed due to the close proximity of Belfast City Airport, amber warnings are given! During my visit no aircraft were seen and I didn’t exceed 63 feet in height.


I never knew that was there Roger even though my son went to Lagan College and my sister-in-law lives down at the bottom of Rocky Road (below the steep bend) :roll_eyes:. I must check it out sometime, thanks for posting it.

Not far away is the site of the old Gilnahirk Listening Station, a Y Station that operated form 1941 to 1978, its another hidden secret! I’ll cover that site soon.

I think I know where the listening station is, but if I’m correct and it’s on the Gilahirk Road near Hillmount and the golf club it’s been turned into apartments now, though to be fair they’ve styled them in keeping with the way the buildings originally looked. Lisnabreeny Rath is on my list of places to visit though I’m not sure it’s worth the trip for it alone.

Yes that’s the location, my other interest is amateur radio.

Nice Photo’s accompanied by a nice historical connection.
