NORTHERN Irelandís football journalists were put through their paces last week by Michael OíNeill, courtesy of Vauxhall, The Northern Ireland Team Sponsor.

Northern Ireland manager, O’Neill, oversaw a specially organised media training session for the national football correspondents prior to the Finland fixture in Belfast.

O’Neill put the media through a rigorous warm up session before casting an eye over their skills in a series of small sided games at the rain drenched Queen’s University.

He said: “I really enjoyed the morning session with the media but I don’t think any of them will be getting a call up anytime soon!”

Peter Hope, Vauxhall Marketing Director, said: “We would like to thank the Irish FA, Michael O’Neill and the Northern Ireland media for making such a superb event happen.


“With such a busy schedule we are very grateful to Michael for giving up his time to and giving the media an insight into like inside the Northern Ireland camp and have no doubt he will have enjoyed putting them under the microscope on the field for a change.”
