Jetset Eddie's joy at passing test

It makes me almost as mad as seeing taxpayer-funded Minister Hogan jetting off to a climate- change jolly. I still haven't passed my driving test, but Eddie Irvine passed his IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) pilot's test last Monday in Florida.

He celebrated in the Dirty Gator Sports Bar in Fort Meyers. The former Formula One racing car demigod, who is based in Florida, did the test in his very own PC-12 plane and said: "It wasn't pretty, but I got it done!"

Irv The Nerve was due to attend the annual billionaires' gathering that is Art Basel in Miami on Wednesday night. He was also expected to host a party at his beachfront home on Friday night in Miami before flying on to Exuma in the Bahamas where he has a mansion (plus ca change) on the beach.

Then fast Eddie is coming home for Christmas in Northern Ireland to visit his parents Edmund and Kathleen.
