Irish PM Brian Cowen accepts election defeat

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen conceded defeat on Saturday in the general election, after his ruling Fianna Fail party was crushed by voters angry over the economy and an EU-IMF bailout.
"Clearly today there wasn't support for our party in great numbers. We accept as democrats the outcome," Cowen told RTE television after exit polls suggested Fianna Fail was set to lose two-thirds of its parliamentary seats.
Cowen himself had already stepped down as leader of Fianna Fail, Ireland's traditional ruling party, after months of pressure over his handling of the economy.He was replaced by former foreign minister
