The Egyptian city of Port Said is the northern gateway to one of the world's key shipping lanes, the Suez Canal connecting the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea. With its ornate buildings and clean streets, the sprawling city has one of the highest standards of living in Egypt.
But this year, Port Said has become known for something more sinister: It was the site of Egypt's deadliest soccer riot.
Many of the city's officials and residents say the tragedy has destroyed Port Said's reputation and left them in financial trouble.
House prices have crashed. Banks and businesses have failed. Jobs have been axed. People are struggling to make the mortgage.
The Republic of Ireland's 4.6 million people have suffered considerably since the financial crisis began four years ago, forcing their government to turn to the European Union and International Monetary Fund for a $90 billion bail-out.
