Lack of Team Northern Ireland souvenirs pitiful

Published 08/08/2014

I HAVE just returned from the Commonwealth Games where, as an expat, I was delighted to see so many sportspeople from Northern Ireland in action.

There was disappointment, though, over the Games' memorabilia – plenty of items from England, Scotland and Wales, but none from Northern Ireland.

A query to the staff elicited the reply that Northern Ireland submitted their logo six weeks too late for manufacture. Good job they got their entries in on time.
