From the Headline Wire:
• "French president Sarkozy apologizes to Ireland" for the Thierry Henry hand-ball that knocked Ireland out of next year's World Cup. ("I told Brian Cowen how sorry I was for them," said Sarkozy.)
• "Economic fallout in Ireland over elimination" ("It would have lifted the gloom and got people spending.")
