United We Stand

I'm glad I was able to find this article about plans for a pact which would see the unification of Irish athletics for the first time in 70 years.

President Mary McAleese's husband,Martin,has been lined up to broker talks which would see athletes from Ireland's north no longer competing for the UK but for Ireland instead.

This is fantastic news.Moves to unite Ireland in sport are excellent for nationalism and if one day we see a united Ireland football team I believe it would be great for the people on this island.Sport brings people together and football remains particularly important to the people north and south.
I hope it comes about soon.
