Cowen’s family ties
Reasons never to blindly trust Wikipedia: did you know Kofi Annan was Brian Cowen’s twin brother? No? I suspect he didn’t either.
According to the edited Wikipedia entry for Annan:
“Kofi Annan was born in Tullamore, Co. Offaly. He is a twin, a respected status in Ghanaian culture. His twin brother Brian Cowan, shares the middle name ‘Atta’, which in Fante and Akan means ‘twin’.”
The page’s history reveals that it was an Irish user located in Dublin who made the edits, or at least their IP address says that’s where they are.
So far it’s survived – how much longer it will stay there is another thing.
