Footballers have done us proud

The recent result achieved by the Northern Ireland football team against Portugal was a fantastic performance by every member of the side and one of which our country can quite rightly be very proud!

To get a draw against the team ranked third in the world by FIFA is an incredible achievement for a county our size and one which Michael O'Neill and his entire squad can take great pride in.

It was also fantastic to hear and see so many members of the Green and White Army travelled to Portugal to support Our Wee Country.

They certainly played their part in supporting the team and were a credit to Northern Ireland. This result gives everyone a much needed lift as we go into the next round of qualifying matches.
