WATCH: Gaza teens welcomed to Ireland with friendly game of football on Sandymount Strand


A group of teenagers from Gaza were welcomed to Ireland today with a friendly game of football on Sandymount Strand.

Arriving to Dublin from Gaza at 7:20 this morning, 18 boys from the country’s only football academy went straight from airport to astroturf, triumphing over local team, Iveagh Trust, in the first of a series of games scheduled for the week.

They were then taken to the South Dublin beach for a less competitive kick-around.
