On behalf of the European Commission, President Barroso would like to congratulate very warmly the European Team for having won, for the third consecutive time, The 2006 Ryder Cup, the famous golf tournament whose final took place in Ireland.
We are all proud of this achievement, just the same way as the European Team golf players for whom it was magical to win this tournament.
