From Templepatrick To The Oval, Samson And Goliath, Flags In The Streets And The UEFA Delegate’s Meeting

On the morning of a UEFA game, there’s a delegate’s meeting where the final details are confirmed and any outstanding issues are raised.

Although I haven’t been able to do any sightseeing, due to the short time spent in Northern Ireland, nevertheless I did the next best thing, and watched on as we took the bus journey from the hotel in Templepatrick.

The impressive Harland and Wolff cranes – Samson and Goliath – dominate the skyline and they’re visible from Glentoran’s stadium.

The Oval is set in a loyalist area and so flags dominate the streets around the ground. The union, English and Northern Ireland flags, in particular, dominate.

Then there was the meeting itself which went well.
