By Padraic Halpin DUBLIN (Reuters) - Ireland's government has struck a deal with trade unions to restore some of the pay cuts imposed on public-sector workers after the country's financial crisis, spending minister Brendan Howlin said on Friday. Ireland's economy grew faster than any other in the European Union last year as the government ended years of tax hikes and spending cuts, and promised pay rises to the country's 290,000 public-sector workers a year out from elections. Public servants signed up to cuts averaging 15 percent when the crisis erupted in 2008.

FIFA President Blatter gestures after he was re-elected at the 65th FIFA Congress in ZurichBy Mike Collett and Brian Homewood ZURICH (Reuters) - Sepp Blatter was re-elected president of FIFA for a fifth term on Friday after his only challenger conceded defeat in an election overshadowed by allegations of rampant corruption in world soccer. Blatter won despite demands that he quit in the face of a major bribery scandal being investigated by U.S., Swiss and other law enforcement agencies that plunged soccer's governing body into the worst crisis in its 111-year history. Neither Blatter nor Jordanian opponent Prince Ali bin Al Hussein received the necessary two thirds of votes in the first round, with Blatter securing 133 votes against 73 for Prince Ali.
