The 46-year-old Randalstown man, along with team-mates Paul Daly and Neil Mulholland, collected silver after losing to South Africa in the men's triples final last Monday - adding to a Commonwealth medal collection including g old in Kuala Lumpur (1998), bronze in Manchester (2002) and silver in Melbourne (2006).

"Neil has had a great career, winning four medals in five Commonwealth Games," Northern Ireland chef de mission Robert McVeigh said.

"He is a respected member of Team NI and many athletes value the experience he brings. We look forward to attending the closing ceremony and celebrating the success of the Games with the organisers."

Northern Ireland had to wait until Saturday to secure their first gold of the Games, winning two on the penultimate day of action through boxers Paddy Barnes and Michael Conlan.

The team will take home 12 medals in total from Glasgow 2014 - nine from boxing, plus bronze in women's pairs bowls along with the men's triples silver, and Lisa Kearney's judo bronze.
