February 1987. Ireland had not yet qualified for Euro 88 in Germany. The Green army had yet to emerge. But Jack was in Cork and we were asked to host a lunch in Lovetts for Jack as the FAI were promoting a new national draw. Jack was in great form as it was the week after Ireland had beaten Scotland 1 -0 with a valuable Mark Lawrenson away goal. Michael and Dave Ronayne had been to this match, which was a great week as Ireland had also played Scotland in rugby in same week. We had been sponsoring the “player of the match“ for the previous 2 years and we had great fun over lunch with Jack discussing our choices; Jack was pleased with our choice of nominating Dave Langan, and of course Dave R had to inform Jack of his own career as a right full back!!!! The 2 lads look a bit different now!
