Irish Archaeology

After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Scottish archaeologists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, English Archaeologists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in The English newspapers read: 'English archaeologists have found traces Of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors Already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years Earlier than the Scots.'

One week later, 'The Kerryman,' a southwest Irish newspaper, reported the following: 'After digging as deep as 30 meters in a peat bog near Tralee , Paddy O'Droll, a self taught archaeologist, reported that he found Absolutely nothing. Paddy has therefore concluded that 300 years ago Ireland had already gone wireless.'
