The Gaza Kids to Ireland programme was launched by former Irish manager Brian Kerr in 2014.
This year, 18 boys from the Al-Helal football academy arrived in Dublin on Friday 28 July.

From there they travelled to Kinvara in Galway and Manorhamilton in Co Leitrim, where they played against local sides.
The trip to Leitrim in particular was a success for the visitors as they won all three of their games against Manorhamilton Rangers.
The travelling party will also visit Limerick and Cork before returning to Dublin at the end of the week.
