This book has been compiled by the History Group of the Holywood District University of the Third Age (U3A).
It contains concise accounts of the lives of around 70 individuals and families, past and present, associated with the town of Holywood and the surrounding district. Most have lived here, some have also worked here, while a few have more tenuous connections with Holywood, but were nevertheless deemed worthy of inclusion.
The selection was based not on quantitative criteria, but on an assessment of the significance of the individual's contribution to the development of Holywood or wider society.
This book reminds us both of the cultural richness of our town, and the impact that its residents have had on the wider community. While some have travelled widely in their chosen occupations and callings, many have retained their roots in Holywood.
This illustrated book includes one, and often two, images associated with each entry, including aspects of their work or memorials which can be seen today.
