Sports fans across Ireland fly flags for Gaza

Palestine flags appear on Hill 16, Cork City and UFC

A 'Free Gaza' banner is unfurled on Hill 16 during the Leinster final between Dublin and Meath

DUBLIN GAA fans on Hill 16 unfurled a huge banner reading 'Free Gaza' during the Leinster Senior Football Final on Sunday while Palestinian flags were flown by crowds at other sporting events across the country.

Viewers tuning in to watch the Leinster and Ulster finals could not help but notice the numerous Palestinian flags being waved throughout the crowd. 

Palestinian flags also made appearances at the SSE Airtricity Premier League clash between Cork City and UCD as well as at the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) sell-out night at the O2 arena in Dublin.

The display of so many Palestinian flags at sporting events across Ireland is a clear reflection of the public mood which saw thousands take to the streets in cities, towns and villages throughout the country ver the weekend to show their opposition to the horrific onslaught against the besieged Gaza Strip by the Israeli war machine.
