Name: Rob Walsh
Club: Blessington GAA
Now Living: Toronto, Canada
How long have you been living there?
Reason For Leaving Ireland:
I heard Canada offers cutting edge treatment for baldness – way better than Turkey. Would you agree Kevin John Rogers?!
Thing you miss the most:
Superquinn Sausages – seeing Gavin Murray’s legs when he’s togged out in the Wickla People is a constant reminder
People you miss the Most:
I’d have to give the family that honour!
Best thing about your new home:
It’s very safe.. The Policemen have guns not like Mick O’Rourke💪
Worst thing about your new home:
–40 degrees in the winter.. i’m small enough as it is…
Funny story from your time overseas:
Sean “Budgie” Murphy arriving over thinking he would find love.. He should have went to Lourdes if he was expecting miracles..
Funny story from before you left home:
Brian Carroll drinking gin for the first time.. I’ll say no more
People you are glad to be far away from:
Bad influences like Wes and Wayne Callaghan aka Phil and Grant Mitchell – Eastenders does Blessington!
Is your club better/worse off without you: Definitely worse!
Sure they haven’t won a Championship since I left #jinglejingle
What 3 people would you fly to you if you could and why:
1. John Magee – The house could do with a free lick of paint.. In and out job though, he’s small doses
2. Barry Murphy – he’s looking a little on the heavy side at the minute and could do with a couple of PT sessions off me
3. Steven “Skank” Doran – could teach the Canadians a thing or two on male grooming and style.. Don’t ask him to pay for the ticket over though…
What person in Ireland’s love would bring you home:
Conor Finans love of a Macaris chipper.. Now that’s true love
What person in Ireland’s love would make you want to stay away:
It’s a toss up between Jono Daniels’ love of the GAA and Paddy Brophy’s love of concrete blocks.. Two sleeping tablets..
