Sports Minister Nelson McCausland has praised the Ireland cricket team after they defeated England in the World Cup earlier today.
"This is a historic win for the Ireland team," the Minister said.
"To defeat an England side packed with household names, and fresh from victory in the Ashes, is a truly remarkable achievement.
"While Ireland may have been the underdogs, they showed skill, courage and sportsmanship to beat one of the world's cricketing superpowers.
The Minister added: "It was a superb team effort, but praise must go to Kevin O'Brien for a magnificent century which will no doubt go down in history."
