Friday Fun-News in Brief

Around 250,000 Irish people are expected to buy tickets for tonight's record-breaking €62m Euromillions jackpot. The National Lottery has described the jackpot as the biggest jackpot in Europe.

€62m?! Hell, if I won that jackpot my Euro-sceptic attitude would be washed away in a sea of coins and bills.

President McAleese today stated she was 'privileged' to attend the Pope's funeral.

The President was heartened at being in a city where there are so few Protestants. (note - this is a lie)

A leading Irish milliner, Philip Treacy, is to supply the hat worn by Camilla Parker Bowles at her wedding to Prince Charles, it emerged today.

"She will look fabulous. I think people will be surprised," he said.

Is it one of those leprechaun hats? I really hope it is.

Prince Charles shook hands with Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe at the Pope's funeral today.

Wow, that's one interesting exchange. On the one hand, you've got a man whose very position is an insult to democracy and on the other've got Robert Mugabe.
