Residents in Whiterock Gardens have followed the lead of their neighbours in nearby Iris Drive.

"I got the Republic of Ireland - I don't think I'm in with a chance."

Last week it was revealed that residents in Iris Drive were proudly flying the flags of the participating countries ahead of the Euro 2016 football tournament.
