April was a busy month, and I have photographic evidence to back it up, including trips to Dublin, Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool.
I headed to Dublin at the start of the month to see Linfield take on Bohemians in a Setanta Cup Semi-Final.
The game was on Easter Saturday, but I decided to take Good Friday off and head down to make a wee break of it.
I spent the Friday in Dublin and took in a League of Ireland clash between St Patrick’s Athletic and Sporting Fingal in the evening, before the Linfield match on the Saturday.
One big regret of the month was that I didn’t take my camera to the Easter Tuesday title decider against Glentoran, but two days later, I was in Sheffield watching James in concert at Sheffield O2 Academy.
The next day, I headed to Manchester, before spending the Saturday in Liverpool and then going to Ewood Park on the Sunday.
A few weeks later, I had an unexpected week off work and became a tourist in my own city, and managed to get some intersting graffiti shots.
The end of the month, saw Linfield visit Seaview to take on Crusaders in a game where Noel Bailie made his 1,000th appearance for Linfield, which was commemorated with a banner.
A win for Linfield that day would have secured the title, but a 0-0 draw meant that champagne was on ice.
A 1-0 win over Cliftonville on the following Tuesday night meant Linfield were champions, and I had my camera there to capture.
