Minister O'Donoghue said: "I wish to extend my congratulations to Brian on his marvelous win for Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Athens tonight. He gave a wonderful performance and in the process extended Ireland's record number of Eurovision wins to eight. Everyone should be very proud of this excellent achievement."
In reality Brian came 10th and my tip for the top, Lithuania, came 6th.
When the Department realised Brian hadn't won or that some people in Ireland had actually watched the show, or maybe someone just spotted the result in the Sunday newspapers, they removed the press release from their website.
Don't worry lads, mistakes happen, and sure in another few years you will be able to claim we won and no one will know any different cause no one cares anymore.
