p77-O'Connell

There were tears yesterday when we all,
Said goodbye to the big fella, Paul,
He helped us to win,
But did his leg in,
While answering old Ireland’s call.

      Yes, I used to write some stinkingly nasty things about old Moynes. Now he’s just part of the furniture, albeit in a Norman Bates’s mother sort of a way.
