Arlene Foster has taken some respite from the chaos of the ongoing Brexit wranglings to support Northern Ireland in their clash against the Republic of Ireland.

The DUP leader joined Northern Ireland supporters, known fondly as the Green and White Army (GAWA), in Dublin's Aviva Stadium on Thursday night.

Mrs Foster was spotted sporting a green and white scarf as she cheered on the side in the international friendly.

It is the first time the sides have met since 2011, when the Republic of Ireland ran out 5-0 winners in the Nations Cup encounter in Dublin.
