I don't consider gold and snooker to be proper sports.

NI sends athletes to the CW games from sports that are otherwise organized on an all-Ireland basis - boxing and athletics to name 2.

Indeed, best of both worlds for those guys & girls. Maybe if and when Jeffrey Donaldson persuades the Republic to rejoin the Commonwealth more can enjoy the benefits. Ponder folks. :)

Sport, IMHO, should be something which requires a modicum of athletic activity. I'll reluctantly give you darts, but if you start putting in board games, where does that stop? Is draughts a sport? Tiddlywinks? :banghead:

That discussion didn't proceed as Jeffrey may might have anticipated. Most of the contributors thought that might be feasible within a United Ireland :lol:

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you can compete at the highest level in slacks and a Pringle sweater it ain't a sport ...

Well before we get back to Norn Iron footie, I just want to congratulate the Norn Iron Volleyball team who beat the Faroe Islands in 2016.

Never played Kendo but I see that in Norn Iron it is governed by the British Kendo Association.
But I fully accept that most sports on this lovely island of Ireland are administered on an All Ireland basis and for the avoidance of any doubt I have no problem with that.
And sure isn't the Orange Order as well :)
