Reaction from both sides of the political divide in Belfast as the Republic of Ireland qualify for the knock out stages of the World Cup.

Supporters at the Donegal Celtic club in west Belfast were delighted with the draw against the Netherlands which meant the Republic of Ireland were now into the last sixteen teams at the World Cup. Joy at Niall Quinn's goal was expressed with an unusual celebration.

At the Northern Ireland supporters club on the Shankhill Road support for the Republic of Ireland had been strong for the game against England. Reactions now were more mixed to the Republic's progress.

I would like to see the Republic getting there in one sense of the way. I would love to see them get to the final but in another way I wouldn't. You know? But in saying that best of luck to them.
