CONGRATULATIONS to the Northern Ireland boxing team for their extraordinary medal haul at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The performances of Paddy Barnes, Michael Conlan, Michaela Walsh, Alana Audley-Murphy and Joe Fitzpatrick, to name but a few, did Northern Ireland proud.

National Lottery players have raised more than £1bn for projects in Northern Ireland, with more than £128m going towards sport. This includes £3.1m to boxing .

All who play the National Lottery and help towards funding sport here should feel proud.
