Those clever Irish!

After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, French Scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a large telephone network more than 100 years ago.
 
Not to be outdone by France, in the weeks that followed, Scottish scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in all Scottish newspapers read:  "Scottish archaeologists have found traces of the 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than France."
 
One week later, "The Telegram", in Dublin, Southern Irelands premier newspaper reported the following:  "After digging as deep as 30 meters in tatey fields near Bally-Brook, Patrick O'Mara, a self taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing.  Patrick  has therefore concluded that 300 years ago the Irish were already using wireless".
