An announcement due at 7pm (16/11/10) from Brussels? Guardian

Ireland's debt crisis - live coverage | Business | guardian.co.uk

Look under 6:04pm

"6.04pm: Over in Dublin, RTE journalist Fergal Keane is reporting Cowen's speech didn't go down well with backbenchers and that the rumour mill is in overdrive about the announcement due at 7pm from Brussels.

There is speculation that it would include some sort of face-saving deal for the Irish government.

Of course, that press conference could come later than 7pm, given the late start"

Also here - Big Announcement Coming On Irish Crisis AT 2PM ET

EDIT AT 9:00pm HERE ARE LINKS TO LIVE BROADCAST OF PRESS CONF:

RT Ireland's National Television and Radio Broadcaster if in Ireland.

Live and On-Demand Streaming - Council of the European Union - if elsewhere

Nothing could save face for our traitor in chief.

There were suggestions from the Finns that nothing would be announced until at least tomorrow.

There is only so much patience the markets have.
European and US indices down today.
Irish bond rate up to 8.55%

Think there would have to be a statement accepting bailout or an intent to do so soon.

Fair play, i suppose comparing him to something as wonderful as the yoni is a far.
Ghoul it is.

How come The Guardian and other English papers are ahead of Irish media on the Irish debt issue? Don't the Irish media have contacts in Brussels too?

But have they any hard information? If this is wrong it´ll be forgotten about within the hour, if it´s right it´ll be a scoop. I am always uneasy with this race to be first - it must compromise the quality of the reporting and you also have to ask what is the value of being 2 minutes ahead of some other news agency.

They need to wait for the government press release before reporting anything.

Click Europe top left of vid window. No doubt this will cover it if on.

Il throw out another possibility. An announcement tonight coupled with Cowen calling a general election??

That would be just too much to hope for, but the body language of Lenihan and Cowen is not good. They look to be under severe pressure, but it is very hard to feel any sympathy. We need an election and now.

From Guardian:

We're still waiting for the press conference to start – given the earlier delay of around an hour (see 5.25pm), we could be waiting a while.

The conference will be streamed live on the European Union website,

Live and On-Demand Streaming - Council of the European Union

and I will of course update when it begins.

I've emailed the EU Council press office to ask what will be discussed, but unsurprisingly I wasn't given an insight.

"We won't have the answer to your question before the press conference itself," was a spokesman's reply.
