First Minister Arlene Foster joined up with Rathfriland manufacturing company Andante Percussion, which has designed limited edition drums for supporters going to the Euro 2016 Championships.

Andante will be equipping travelling supporters with drums to take to the football stadia of France.

This summer marks the 30th anniversary of Andante and also 30 years since Northern Ireland last participated in a major football championship.

As part of an eye-catching campaign and to mark the presentation of the drums, the First Minister and Oonagh Hinds, the executive director of Invest NI, joined Andante at Belfast International Airport to greet fans on their way to support their team in France.

The DUP leader said: "Northern Ireland fans are second to none around the world, and whilst they have no problem being heard in football stadia, the beat of the Andante drums will help to add rhythm to the vast chorus of voices."
