Sorry to all the Irish craic-pots.

Byline: Dave Kidd

ON the basis of information from previously reliable sources that Irish people are an overwhelmingly goodnatured bunch who enjoy 'the craic', this column poked gentle fun at the Republic's cruel World Cup play-off defeat by France last week.

It has since come to our attention that this information was incorrect, that many of the Irish are as thin-skinned, po-faced and zealously politically correct as many English people, and, furthermore, that by suggesting Gaelic football and hurling might be in any way 'daft' we were guilty of a racist and a deeply offensive slur on a downtrodden nation.

We would like to apologise unreservedly to the people of Ireland for any offence caused.
