From Carrick to Espana - NI fans in '82
- From the section Football
A group of Northern Ireland fans begin the long journey from a Carrickfergus pub to watch Billy Bingham's Northern Ireland team play at the 1982 World Cup in Spain.
The ticketless supporters received a rousing send-off in the County Antrim town as they set off in a van for the tournament.
It would be a memorable trip as Northern Ireland defeated hosts Spain to progress from their group.
