RETIREMENT OF FOOTBALLER DAVID HEALY
EDM #846
Tabled 04 December 2013
2013-14 Session
That this House notes the retirement from football of David Healy MBE; recognises the outstanding contribution he has made at a number of clubs, but particularly his Northern Ireland career where he is the country's highest ever goal-scorer with 36 goals in 95 international appearances; further recognises that he is one of the few players in the world to score a hat-trick against Spain, also smashing the European record with 13 goals in a single European qualifying campaign; and wishes him and his family every success for the future in the knowledge that his goal-scoring exploits will live long in the memory of football fans across the UK but especially in his birthplace, Northern Ireland.
