McGuinness: would it be great to be able to back Northern Ireland team…

Interesting internet Q&A on the Belfast Telegraph site, which draws the majority of its questions for Martin McGuinness from Britain as much as from home. The last question asks whether he will support Northern Ireland in its bid for qualification:

I’m all for anything that will unite the country. There is a possibility that both Irish teams could qualify. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to cheer on both. Ultimately of course I would prefer to see one unified team representing the whole of Ireland.
