Workers at Harland & Wolff have seen a deluge of support - from donations of suncream and food to performances by local celebrities.
As the Belfast Telegraph reports, the workforce continue their occupation of the historic shipyard even as the firm is placed into administration, there has been a steady stream of supporters arriving with donations and words of encouragement.
Newry singer Tommy Sands donned a Harland & Wolff cap as he performed a number of songs at the gates of the shipyard yesterday, including one he had written for the workers.
Unite shop steward and Harland & Wolff steel worker Joe Passmore thanked Mr Sands, saying his performance had made the hairs on the back of his neck stand up.
"Fantastic, I'm sure every shipyard worker here had the same feeling, I know you did actually," he said.
