In a shock announcement, Sepp Blatter the president of the world Football federation, FIFA, has announced that Ireland are to be granted automatic entry into the 2014 World Cup.

Although not explicitly said, many believe this is in response not being cheated out of a world cup place in 2010 by the Hand of Frog, after Thierry Henry intentionally used his hand to put France through in Ireland's place.

This comes as something of a back-down from Blatter who previously decided that all is fair in love and football.

"On reflection," said Blatter, "I saw myself backwards."

The news was met with unbridled joy on the streets of Cork as residents flocked to the pubs and drank themselves into a stupor before hearing the news and cheering.

Thierry Henry, on being questioned about this said: "Uh, bon, le francai ne deserve pas deuz bein le cup de monde."

This has led many to believe Henry isn't French at all.

Graham Norton, the only Irish 'man' Anglicised enough to be understandable, said he was quite happy at the news:

"I'm gay," he said.

The Irish National Football team are said to be ecstatic, and will be taking the next four years off to concentrate on raising a jar or two instead.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
