It's Northern Ireland, not 'the north'

The article by Eoghan Harris in The Belfast Telegraph (Comment, August 5) regarding RTE News's failure to give Northern Ireland its proper title was very interesting - and somewhat ironic.

Mr Harris describes the minister responsible, Eamon Ryan, as a "modern Irishman", so we wait in anticipation for his response.

However, our ministers in the Northern Ireland Government should likewise take note - especially with the BBC at Ormeau Avenue - as the reluctance of some of its journalists, newsreaders and reporters to utter the words 'Northern Ireland' is embarrassing, to say the least.
