Byline: Ken Murray

IT APPEARS that a recent "friendly" soccer match between staff from the Department of the Taoiseach and Eamon O'Cuiv's Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs - known as Craggy Island - was anything but.

As you know Eamon O'Cuiv is a grandson of former Taoiseach Eamon de Valera and it seems that that historic symbolism was evident on the day.

Such was the hostility at Bushy Park, Terenure, that three players were booked in the first five minutes and tempers were frayed until the match ended in a 2-2 draw.

I've even heard that 'P O'Neill' has issued a statement calling on Government Departments to end hostilities and decommission players who are a threat to democracy.

Will there ever be peace in Ireland?
