The Aviva Stadium lit up in the Pride colours in 2019

This evening.

Via The Irish Sun:

Dublin’s Aviva Stadium will be lit up in the colours of Pride tonight to show support for members of the LGBTI+ community in Ireland.

The move comes in the wake of UEFA blocking Germany’s proposal to do likewise for their EURO 2020 fixture against Hungary.
