There’s a Harvey Norman in Ireland?

Whilst reading through a story on livenews.com.au [1] about comments Harvey Norman Chairman Gerry Harvey made on ABC TV’s Inside Business program about Australia being over the worst of the economic crisis, I was stunned to read the following:

Mr Harvey said the 16 Harvey Norman stores in Ireland were operating in a challenging economic environment, which was showing no signs of improvement.

“That economy has been absolutely battered so we’ve got stores over there that are down 10, 20, 30, 40 per cent on last year,” Mr Harvey said.
[..]
Mr Harvey said the Irish stores would lose millions as a result of the economic downturn.

Although I was surprised to learn that there are Harvey Norman stores in Ireland, I’m much more interested in something else…what would this sound like with an Irish accent?

Would anybody like to record a version with an Irish accent?
