LONDON - While some Europeans swelled with pride when the European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize, howls of derision erupted from the continent's large band of skeptics. To many in the 27-nation bloc, the EU is an unwieldy and unloved agglomeration overseen by a top-heavy bureaucracy devoted to creating arcane regulations about everything from cheese to fishing quotas. Set up with noble goals after the devastation of World War II, the EU now appears to critics to be impotent amid a debt crisis that has widened north-south divisions, threatened the euro currency and plunged several members, from Greece to Ireland to Spain, into economic turmoil.

Notre Dame's trip to Ireland could not have gone much better. The Fighting Irish eased in their new quarterback, showed they have a couple of capable replacements for their suspended star running back and even got a touchdown from a 300-pound defensive lineman. Theo Riddick and George Atkinson both ran for two scores and defensive end Stephon Tuitt returned a fumble 77 yards for another TD as Notre Dame routed Navy, 50-10, in Saturday's season opener in Dublin, Ireland. A crowd of 49,000, mostly visiting Americans, filled Dublin's Aviva Stadium for the first U.S. college game in Ireland since 1996, when the same two teams played in the Emerald Isle Classic.

WHEN IT comes to sports firsts, Ryan Mackiewicz' résumé already includes one impressive entry. Now he's about to shoot for another and, if he's successful, Cool Memory No. 1 will become a distant No. 2. Yes, Mackiewicz, now a 5-11, 188-pound senior, enjoyed himself immensely last May 2 when his RBI single capped a two-run home seventh and lifted Father Judge High to a stirring 5-4 win over Roman Catholic in Game No. 1 on the school's new...

Notre Dame suspended quarterback Tommy Rees and linebacker Carlo Calabrese for the Sept. 1 season opener against Navy in Ireland. Coach Brian Kelly made the announcement Tuesday, a little less than two months after the two players were arrested following an off-campus party in South Bend, Ind. Kelly said the two made a set of "poor decisions" and will therefore not travel with the team to Ireland. Rees was pepper-sprayed and arrested after he ran away from an off-campus party May 3 and knocked the wind out of a police officer who caught up to him. Calabrese was charged with a misdemeanor count of intimidation.

VATICAN CITY - Pope Benedict XVI told Irish Catholics on Sunday it was a mystery why priests and other church officials abused children entrusted in their care, undermining faith in the church "in an appalling way. " By describing the decades of child abuse in Catholic parishes, schools and church-run institutions and parishes in Ireland as a "mystery," the pontiff could further anger rank-and-file faithful in Ireland. Benedict commented on the scandals of sexual abuse and cover-ups by church hierarchy in a prerecorded video message for an outdoor Mass attended by 75,000 Catholics, many from overseas, in Ireland's largest sports stadium.

Fernando Torres scored a goal in each half, and David Silva and substitute Cesc Fabregas added the others as Spain beat Ireland, 4-0, in Gdansk, Poland, and eliminated the Irish from the European Championship with their most lopsided loss in 41 years. The Spaniards' dazzling ball control, dizzying passing game, and deluge of shots were way too much for the Irish. Spain, which leads Group C along with Croatia with four points, dominated the tempo and scoring opportunities through its quick combinations and precise passing.
