UK election: N Ireland awaits to see how DUP will benefit from May deal

Many people in Northern Ireland are waiting to see how the socially conservative Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) will be rewarded for propping up UK Prime Minister Theresa May's government by supporting a minority government.

The DUP's 10 seats will allow May to stay in power after the recent snap election. But the deal could complicate issues with the Northern Irish nationalist Sinn Fein Party, including a power sharing agreement that collapsed in January.

Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from the party's heartland of Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland.
