Tomorrow Northern Ireland's netball team takes on the might of England in the quarter finals of the world cup.
Whatever the result, it has already been a marvellous tournament for the girls with a number of notable victories bringing them to unprecedented heights in the sport.
Can the girls now emulate the Irish cricketers who embarrassed England in their world cup? Their task is even more difficult, but they have nothing to lose. And once again it is sports stars who are bringing honour to the province and gaining us a worldwide reputation for excellence.
