Bob Evans - former metalwork teacher at Millstreet Community School, and a superb footballerThis is for Bob Evans who retired today after many years of teaching at Millstreet Community School:

For years he’s lived and worked in Millstreet the man who shattered Millstreet’s dream
The day he kicked the equalizer for the Carbery football team
Fifteen thousand watched in Macroom some quite stunned by what they’d seen
When Millstreet were forced to a replay ‘thanks to Bob from Skibbereen’.

But in that first game of missed chances Bobby Evans made them pay.
