Northern Ireland is bordered by the Republic of Ireland on the island of Ireland. It is made up of 6 counties; County Antrim, County Armagh, County Londonderry, County Down, County Fermanagh and County Tyrone.

Northern Ireland have taken part in every edition of the Games, bar 1950, and have the distinction of achieving medal success at each and every one. Lawn bowls (Watson & Rosbotham) and athletics (Thelma Hopkins) provided the first gold medals for the Nation in 1954 and lawn bowls and shooting providing silver medals in Melbourne in 2006 and boxing providing 3 gold medals in Delhi 2010 and 2 in Glasgow.

As one of the Home Countries in the UK, Northern Ireland is not able to be a member of the Olympic Movement so the Commonwealth Games provides the only opportunity for its athletes to compete under their own flag at the international level in a multi-sport event.

Their participation in the Commonwealth Games and Commonwealth Youth Games is organised by Commonwealth Games Northern Ireland.
