Eddie Halvey’s first cap came in the 1995 Six Nations against France after Ireland had lost their opening two games to England and Scotland. His previous international experience was at A level where he played 4 times with his first, A game against Scotland in 1993. Although Ireland lost against France that year, Eddie had impressed enough to retain his place and more importantly cement his place on the World cup Squad of ’95. It was in the World cup that he scored his two International tries, one against Japan in a 50 points to 28 win, while his most memorable try was probably against Wales that secured Ireland a quarter final spot. Eddie played no part in the senior side for the next two years with his appearances in Green confined to “A” games including a development tour to New Zealand and Samoa. In the autumn of that year he won his last two caps against New Zealand and Canada respectively.
