Glenarm
Glenarm
Looking across Glenarm Bay from the A2 approaching the village. The church with the spire on the right hand side of the photograph is St Patrick's which was built in the 1760s but significantly altered (to a more "English" style) in the 1870s.

The village of Glenarm (from Irish Gleann Arma, meaning 'valley of the army') in County Antrim lies on the North Channel coast north of the town of Larne and the village of Ballygalley, and south of the village of Carnlough. It had a population of 1,851 people in the 2011 Census. Glenarm takes its name from the glen in which it lies, the southernmost of the nine Glens of Antrim (Wikipedia).
