Will Rammstein perform in London or Dublin?

The CS Lewis square in Belfast

CS Lewis might not be as famous as JRR Tolkien, but he is still an incredible author, and they actually knew one another. CS Lewis was born in Belfast, and in 2016, a square named after him was inaugurated. 

The square is a big one, located near the Connswater and Comber Greenways. You can see its location on the map beneath as well.

CS Lewis Square

If you decide to visit the CS Lewis square, you can drink some coffee in Jack’s Coffee Bar (CS Lewis was known as Jack among friends). But, more important are the seven sculptures located at the square itself, with the sculpture of Aslan being the most important.

In addition to Aslan, you can also see sculptures of The White Witch, Mr. Tumnus, The Beavers, The Robin, and The Stone Table.

The CS Lewis square is a nice place to let your kids run around for some minutes while you sit down to enjoy some fresh air, or maybe a coffee in the coffee bar. It is also a perfect place to tell your kids about CS Lewis and his books. If they have already read them, this will be a place where the stories will come to life and they will for sure enjoy looking at the sculptures showing them characters they already know well!

Northern Ireland vs Norway [World Cup 2018 qualification]

After a short break the World Cup 2018 qualifiers are back. Northern Ireland will start 2017 with a match against Norway, a match both teams need to win!

On the paper Norway should be a stronger team than Northern Ireland, but based on their performances so far, Northern Ireland should be far better. Norway has played terrible football during the World Cup qualification so far, and as a result, their main coach Per Hogmo left his job before Christmas. Their new coach is now ready, and the new coach might bring fear here and there, Lars Lagerback, the former coach of Iceland. But, can this Swedish guy who did miracles with Iceland, do the same for Norway as well?

If you want to watch the match between Northern Ireland and Norway in Belfast on March 26th, then you can buy tickets from Viagogo.

Northern Ireland vs Norway
This is not the Windsor Stadium, just an illustration!

The match will start at 20.45 (local time) and the venue is Windsor Park.

If you can’t be there at Windsor Park to watch the match, then you can stream it online here and there. You can for sure watch it at DPlay in Norway, and you might be able to watch it on Fubo TV as well.

The question is whether Kyle Lafferty can bring success to Northern Ireland once again? Or can the Norwegian goal-getter Joshua King, who has scored 11 goals for AFC Bournemouth this season in the Premier League bring hope back to the Norwegian fans? Time will show!
