It seems the famous saying "Irish by birth, Munster by the grace of god" may need to be reversed. When listing the Lions team to play the Waratahs the Irish Times put Paul O'Connell's nationality down as Munster. Is POC pulling the strings behind a planned Munster secession from the rest of Ireland?

Presumably it was just a typo but maybe the government should monitor O'Connell's movements for the next while just to be sure.
