Irish Coastguard S-61 just rattled low over Ballinderry heading towards Lurgan direction.

Didn't hear it on the radio - may have been the Dublin one returning to base.

Not 100% certain it was the Irish Coastguard S-61 as I only got a direct rear view of it.
 
From rear angle I couldn`t make out any colours,but it could have been a RN or RAF SeaKing,however it looked bigger to me,that`s why I plumped for the S-61.
 
Made a lovely rumble :)
