"In November 2010 the Royal Belfast Academical Institution celebrated the two-hundredth anniversary of its establishment in 1810. It is therefore one of the longest-established educational institutions in Ireland and its alumni have over those two centuries contributed much to the development of life in Ireland, in the British empire and indeed wherever Irishmen and women have settled, worked and fought."

This article examines some of the most notable Instonians - alumni of the Royal Belfast Academical Institution - and their many accomplishments over the years.
