Draw Leaves 6 Counties Situation Unresolved

England Ireland 2013

Tonight’s international friendly between England and the Republic of Ireland has finished 1-1 this evening.

Shane Long put the Irish in front early on in the first half, but an equalizer from Frank Lampard earned the home team a vital point – for what exactly, we’re not quite sure. Irish fans have welcomed the results and the performance from the team, but not everyone is happy.

Earlier it was revealed by the Potato that the losing team would surrender the 6 Northern Irish counties, using the match as a peaceful platform to end a dispute and conflict that has lasted on the island for centuries. The winning team would get not only the bragging rights and national pride, but also the 6 counties outright.

The Potato was able to expose internal documents that showed that both governments wanted to lose the match, as neither could afford to maintain the counties.

Draw

But a draw is after throwing a spanner in the works for both governments, who were hoping for a final resolution on the delicate issue after tonight’s match.

A draw means that neither country has lost and so the last minute legislation does not apply and neither country has been able to absolve responsibility for the 6 northern counties. Something neither governments were hoping for.

It appears that the late night legislation that was rushed through the Dáil last night after a huge tab was run up on the bar will become meaningless and both countries will have to go back to more political and diplomatic approaches to the North Of Ireland.
