The Irish, an informative email from Gailsie

It takes an Irishman!

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists
found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years. They came to the
conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more
than 150 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Brits, in the weeks that followed an American
archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet. A story was subsequently
published in the New York Times: "American archaeologists, finding
traces of copper wire 250 years old, have concluded that their ancestors
already had an advanced high-tech communications network - 50 years
earlier than the British."

One week later, the Dublin Times reported:
"After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Nenagh, County
Tipperary, Seamus O'Reilly, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that
he found absolutely nothing. O'Reilly has concluded that 250 years ago,
Ireland had already gone wireless."

Makes you bloody proud to be Irish.....
