Hosting event for Republic is absurd

Published 09/12/2015

Why would anyone want to host an event for the Republic of Ireland football team?

A team that includes players who used the Northern Ireland youth programme to nurture talent and then turned their back on those who had brought them to prominence.

Northern Ireland have achieved qualification at the highest level - in spite of the efforts of the FAI. They do not need to share the limelight with these players.
