The College that left its mark: 150 Years of Methody

There’s no doubt that Methodist College Belfast has moulded generations of notable alumni. A proud collegian himself, author Alan Frame was delighted to be asked to write the history of his alma mater.

To celebrate the recent publication of Floreat Collegium: A 150th Anniversary Portrait of Methodist College Belfast, Alan spoke to The Irish Times about the school that has left its imprint on Belfast and Northern Ireland.

Praised as a ‘beautifully illustrated’ official history of the college, Floreat Collegium includes stories about notable alumni from writers John Hewitt and Robert Greacenm artists Paul Henry and Basil Blackshaw, stained-glass artist Wilhemina Geddes, to actors Jamie Dornan and James Ellis.
