DUBLIN, Ireland -- Bertie Ahern, the Irish prime minister who alternately wheedled and prodded Northern Ireland into an historic peace agreement, announced yesterday he was resigning in the midst of a long-running investigation of his financial ties to businesspeople. Flanked by his ministers, the 56-year-old politician said in an emotional statement that he would step down May 6. The date comes shortly after a planned address to a joint session of the U.S. Congress and the 10th anniversary of the Good Friday agreement, which helped end decades of conflict in Northern Ireland.

LONDON - Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Irish counterpart, Bertie Ahern, said yesterday that they had agreed on a take-it-or-leave-it package of proposals to rescue the faltering Northern Ireland peace agreement and that they would present it to the province's warring politicians next week. Blair said there would be no further negotiations on the document, which he said would demand compromises on all sides. He pleaded with the leaders to "consider them carefully" and not respond with "knee-jerk reactions."

Blair and Ahern warn parties to elect N. Ireland government ARMAGH, Northern Ireland -- The British and Irish prime ministers, Tony Blair and Bertie Ahern, issued an ultimatum yesterday to Northern Ireland's divided politicians: Elect a power-sharing administration by November - or your legislature will be disbanded. Their declaration followed 3 1/2 years of diplomacy that has failed to revive a Catholic-Protestant administration, the intended centerpiece of the Good Friday peace accord that the two prime ministers oversaw eight years ago. A previous coalition collapsed in October 2002 over an Irish Republican Army spying scandal.

LEEDS CASTLE, England - Despite pressure from the prime ministers of Britain and Ireland, three days of negotiations among the leaders of Northern Ireland's political parties failed to bridge important differences over how to share power and end paramilitary violence. But the two prime ministers, Tony Blair of Britain and Bertie Ahern of Ireland, said yesterday that progress had been made, and they indicated that the framework for a breakthrough that would allow Protestants and Catholics to re-establish local rule based on power sharing was on the table.

Rodger Davis and Jim Ahern have always been able to hit the ball a long way off the tee, though in the end it has rarely been that big of an advantage. Davis lost a chance at winning the British Open on two different occasions because of his errant approach shots or poor putting down the stretch. Ahern never had much of a career on the PGA Tour because of his inability to hit the type of shots he needed. Yesterday, Davis and Ahern were in total control in the opening round of the $1.45 million Greater Baltimore Classic at Hayfields Country Club in Hunt Valley.
