Northern Ireland November 2014

A day trip to Belfast.

I took an early morning flight from Luton and then drove onwards to central Belfast for a visit to the impressive Titanic museum.

Followed by a journey south, past Newry to Warrenpoint.

22nd November Warrenpoint Town 1 Linfield 2  Danske Bank Premiership   c. 1,000 (c. 600 away)

Linfield ventured to near the border and the Mountains of Mourne for this encounter against bottom of the table Warrenpoint.

In the end they came away with the points but only after going behind to a combination from the Hughes brothers culminating in Daniel scoring on 12 minutes.
Warrenpoint had deserved the lead in a game that featured many long balls and little midfield craft.

In the second half the visitors pushed Warrenpoint back and despite a few home breakaway chances they dominated play.
Eventually the pressure told, first when Andy Waterworth was allowed too much space and in the final minute, when defender Mark Haughey powerfully headed in the winner.

That sent the large away following home happy although it was tough on the home side.

The weather stayed dry but quite cold.

I drove back to Belfast International in an hour or so and was in Luton by 9pm.
