It's time more sports formed NI association

It was good to read in the Belfast Telegraph ('Boxing's Biggest Change in a Century', Sept 9) that it looks like the Northern Ireland Boxing Association will have been created by the end of the year. It's now time for a number of other sports to form a NI association such as rugby union, cricket, golf and bowls.

However, what about sports as well where we compete as Great Britain (and Northern Ireland) such as athletics, swimming, cycling and rowing? There should be separate Northern Ireland associations for these sports as well.
