    Former Irish international Ron Healey

    Not a name I remember to be honest - two caps in 77/80.

    I'm sure OwlsFan will remember more!

    Only a very very fuzzy memory to my shame because he is a contemporary. You would think that we should remember everyone who played for Ireland, especially in a unique position like goalkeeper. I'd be in my late-teens at the time sticking pictures of Irish players all over the bedroom. I used to get them from Goal magazine. I remember I had ones of John Dempsey, Frank O'Neill, Tony Dunne, John Giles (before he become a pundit ), Terry Conroy etc. They're up in the attic now in a plastic box.

    One that was missed (June 16). Álvaro Rodríguez Ros, a Spanish international, who played for Shels back in the 1960s https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%81...%C3%ADguez_Ros

    Former UK politician, Lord Carrington https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/n...-37100663.html Interesting (to me at least) that he served as a tank commander in the Normandy fighting.

    That's so weird: I'm reading Anthony Beevor Arnhem, and the last chapter I read last night mentioned him in terms of the fighting over Nijmegen Bridge.

    Aretha Franklin gone to the great gig in the sky.

    Carole Kings Tapestry is one of my favourite albums of all time. But she wrote the perfect song for someone else. This is truly one of the most powerful songs of all time by one of the biggest voices of all time.

    RIP

    Who was it dubbed him Instant Kofi because he got to trouble spots so quickly? Private Eye? Phoenix?
