ABSTRACT
LEINSTER House said goodbye this week to Jimmy Walsh, longtime Irish Times political reporter. During an emotional farewell, Jimmy told an anecdote of Ronald Reagan's visit to Ireland. The White House insisted on placing a secret service agent in the Dáil Press Gallery. The journos harrumphed but eventually agreed on condition that the goon be unobtrusive and blend in with the pressmen. As he took his seat, Jimmy found himself sitting next to an African-American, a real rarity in 1980s Ireland. 'Are you a reporter?' the agent asked. 'No,' said Jimmy. 'I'm doing the colour…' before turning beetroot and stuttering an explanation. 'I know what colour means,' the agent snapped.
