DUP leader Arlene Foster will travel to Dublin next week to watch the Republic's soccer match against Northern Ireland.

It is believed the former first minister has been invited to the friendly fixture by Football Association of Ireland (FAI) chief executive John Delaney.

The match at the Aviva stadium takes place on Thursday November 15, the 33rd anniversary of the signing of the Anglo-Irish Agreement.

The sides last met in 2011 in Dublin when the Republic emerged 5-0 winners.

Neither the DUP or the FAI was commenting last night on the invitation to Mrs Foster.

In June, Mrs Foster attended the GAA Ulster Football Final between Donegal and Fermanagh in Clones.
