About the memorial: Our War Memorial is very special to many people in the Village & outside in Northern Ireland generally. We have a Groomsport Remembrance Remembrance Committee who along with Ards & North Down Borough Council advise & maintain the War Memorial. Originally erected by public subscription & the Maxwell Family in the early 20's it was moved back from the road to its present position today. From a dwindling interest some 12 yrs ago we have now grown into a fantastic Parade & Service on the 1st Sunday in November each year. That allows many to come to Groomsport as actual Remembrance Day is always the second Sunday in November each year.
