Euro 2016: Where you can watch the Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland games on big screens outside Belfast

The location for a Euro 2016 fanzone in Belfast has been confirmed but other councils across Northern Ireland are also set to delight the Green and White Army with big screens and events to celebrate the success.

Antrim and Newtownabbey council have released tickets for their family fun events at the Civic Square at Mossley Mill and at the Parterre in Antrim Castle Gardens.

They said that events over the last few weeks have been very well attended and they are looking forward to welcoming more fans this weekend with bouncy castles, face painting, arts and crafts and a barbecue and bar.

Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council will screen the Northern Ireland match in Market Square on Saturday,

There will be entertainment from 3pm with kick-off scheduled for 5pm. The event is aimed at families and alcohol is not permitted.

Derry City and Strabane District Council confirmed that its big screen at Waterloo Place in the city centre will continue to show all Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland games throughout the tournament.

Both Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland games will be played on the big screen in Newry city centre this weekend but there will be no organised event.

Other councils are still looking into the feasibility of hosting more events as fans have turned out in their thousands to support both teams during the group stages of the campaign.

Mid and East Antrim Borough Council previously arranged for three locations across the borough to screen the three Northern Ireland Euro 2016 matches, nine screenings in all.

They said they are still considering whether they will be able to hold more screenings this weekend.
