The Lagan had burst its banks, as it flowed past Clement Wilson Park, causing parts of the park to flood. This view is downstream with this J3269 : Water main near Shaw's Bridge, Belfast (1) in the background. The area can be seen (left) in J3269 : The low Lagan, Shaw's Bridge, Belfast (1) (June 2010) during much drier weather
The River Lagan in flood 14/15 November 2014

Prolonged rain, during November 2014 (especially on 13 November), caused many rivers and drains to overflow, leading to extensive flooding in many parts of Northern Ireland but particularly Cos Armagh and Down. In Belfast the River Lagan (which has its source in the middle of Co Down J3145 : The source of the River Lagan) had broken its banks in several places. This is a collection of photographs taken between Ballyskeagh and Newforge on 14/15 November 2014. I have included, where possible. links to photographs showing, for comparison, the area without flooding.
