(Rooters) Ireland is in shock today as the world famous founder of the worlds most successful economy died as a result of a tragic accident.
The tiger who spent the last 10 years in Dublin Zoo choked to death when Taoseach Enda Kenny tossed him a snack box whilst on a publicity photoshoot. Paramedics were on the scene within minutes but were unable to save the animal who died later in Dublin's Mater hospital.
Concern is now being raised on the future of the Irish economy, as finance minister, Brian Cowhen, said today, "Jaysus, looks like ware well fooked now. I can't imagine Ireland without the Celtic Tiger."
