Rory McIlroy puts his home in Belfast up for sale due to his hectic work schedule and spending more time in the USA.

World number one golfer Rory McIlroy, who has been celebrating Europe's success at the Ryder Cup, has put his Belfast home up for sale.

The 22-year-old, who won his match against the USA's Keegan Bradley on the final day of the contest to help his side retain the cup, has decided to spend more time in America due to his hectic schedule.

"I have really enjoyed living here," he told The Telegraph. "It is a really special place which has allowed me to relax and unwind when I get time.

"With the privacy and seclusion of the location it is hard to believe the house is only 25 minutes from Belfast city centre and City airport."

McIlroy's home, which was bought in 2009, is situated in Moneyreagh, County Down.
