Belfast could bid for 2022 Games

AS Glasgow gears up to host the Commonwealth Games this summer, Durban and Edmonton have expressed interest in hosting the games in 2022.

Why doesn't Belfast consider a bid? Not only would this be a major boost for the economy, it would tie in perfectly with Northern Ireland's centenary celebrations.

What better way to celebrate the city's dynamic contribution to Britain's Empire and her Commonwealth?

I am sure Sports Minister Caral Ni Chuilin would be behind a bid.
