Rose to recieve MBE

Dixon Rose – who has just stepped down as President of the Irish Hockey Association – is to be honoured with an MBE for his services to sport in Northern Ireland. Rose has also served as President of the Irish Cricket Union.

First Minister Peter Robinson paid tribute to those on the list, saying they had been singled out because of the selfless service they had given to their community.

"The people who have been honoured by Her Majesty The Queen today have all shown a determination to make a difference to the society in which they live. It is fitting that their outstanding service, often at considerable personal expense, has been recognised today with the award of an honour.

"I offer my congratulations to all those who received an award and thank them for their considerable efforts."
