The Museum’s holds a vast selection of objects, books, programmes, tickets, prints and ephemera relating to Lisburn and district’s rich sporting history. The collection above illustrates just a snippet from the stores, and includes a Dunlop Maxply tennis racket with racket frame; wooden gymnastic excercise clubs; Fagan Ice Skates, c.1960s alongside an earlier (1920s) model! And, a Golf club marked ‘L. Forshaw, G. C. Lisburn’, who played for Lisburn in the 1920s.
Many of these items are currently on display in our 40 Years Exhibition.
Do you have a sporting memory from Lisburn, or the wider council area, that you want to share with us? Please get in touch! The Museum is always keen to increase the collection and cover sports that are under-represented!
