Mickey Walsh Produces the Goods

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 In January ’85, Ireland’s Eoin Hand
Announced his squad for Italy, exactly as he’d planned.
Defeat in Copenhagen meant that changes were expected,
And one change in particular was certainly suspected.
Mickey Walsh of Porto thus discovered he’d been dropped,
His international career had been prematurely stopped.
Yet somehow, I don’t think he cared ‘bout Ireland or ‘bout squads,
For on that day, his darling wife presented him with quads.
