Glowing object in sky, Ireland.

I saw a glowing orange object in the sky to the east of Dundalk, Co. Louth Friday night between 9.20pm- 9.30pm. It had a wide triangular front and a square body. It had a short orange light trail behind it that noticeably faded but didn’t narrow. It was travelling north then it either burned up or started moving east because it got smaller till it disappeared. A man and a boy who were walking a dog also observed it. I rang Astronomy Ireland and they think it might have been a satellite but I doubt it was.
