Northern Ireland footballer David Healy became a hero on September 7, 2005 when he faced down the biggest names in the sport including David Beckham and Wayne Rooney to score a memorable winning goal against England.

The George Best mural in Cregagh remains bright and in good repair, although new houses built in front of it means it can be tricky to access. Credit: Belfast Telegraph
