A fifth giant stained glass window has been unveiled in Belfast to mark the latest episode in the final season of Game of Thrones.

The unveiling outside the SS Nomadic at Hamilton Dock follows the release of the latest episode in the fantasy epic.

This week’s window stars the villainous and elusive White Walkers, complete with their eyes painted in striking glow-in-the-dark paint.

Fans can come and see the world’s favourite White Walker exploits captured in this week’s stained glass, from Hodor’s final act of self-sacrifice to the Night King’s winged assault on The Wall itself.

The window is the fifth of six that will be erected each week across Belfast as the new episodes are shown on the small screen.

Each window highlights a key House from the show, with a series of panels depicting the most talked-about moments from the entire saga.

The first four windows depicted key moments relating to House Stark, House Lannister, House Baratheon and House Targaryen – located opposite Belfast City Hall, at the Waterfront Hall, the Lagan Weir and SSE Arena.

One final window will be unveiled by Tourism Ireland next week to coincide with the airing of the dramatic final episode of season 8, which will bring the globally successful saga to its close.

By the end of series eight, the windows will form a new Game Of Thrones trail, leading fans across the city to the final window at the Titanic Studios where much of the show has been produced.

The HBO fantasy epic has been filmed on locations across Northern Ireland over the last 10 years and watched by millions of fans across the world.

The Glass Of Thrones installation is part of Tourism Ireland’s new campaign to showcase Northern Ireland as Game Of Thrones territory to millions of fans worldwide.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said the aim of the campaign was to highlight Northern Ireland to audiences across the world.

“We are delighted to continue our partnership with HBO once again in 2019, to highlight Northern Ireland – through the exciting events of Game Of Thrones – on the global stage,” he said.
