The College that left its mark: 150 Years of Methody

'I am so proud to have been at Methody and prouder still to have been asked to write its history. Here's to the next 150 years!'
Alan Frame

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.
