There'll be no more signing today or ever again!

–Irving Walsh

Irving Walsh is the curator of the Astoria Historical Museum. He lives in the Goon Docks with his wife and two kids, Mikey and Brand.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Irving is a middle-aged man with graying hair and glasses. He wears a blue and brown argyle sweater with a dark suit jacket and a bowtie. When reunited with his kids, he wears a tan raincoat and a yellow and red polka-dot bowtie.

Involvement[edit | edit source]

While Mikey was growing up, Irving would tell him bedtime stories of great adventurers, including the infamous One-Eyed Willy.

With the Goon Docks slowly being purchased by Mr. Perkins, the Walsh residence is the last house to be acquired for beginning construction. Working on exhibits at the Historical Museum, Irving has his artifacts and pieces about 17th century pirates, including One-Eyed Willy's map, rumored to lead to his long-lost treausre.

As the Goonies ride their bikes down to Cannon Beach in search of the "rich stuff", they pass the Historical Museum, where Irving is working.

The next morning, he and his wife rush to reunite with their missing kids. Mr. Perkins arrives, however, and Irving is strongarmed into signing away his house, along with the rest of the Goon Docks. Mid-signing, however, the pen is wrenched away by Mouth, and his wife's helper, Rosalita, pours out a marble bag full of gems and treasure. Irving triumphantly exclaims that the Goon Docks are saved and tears up the contract.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Irving Walsh is portrayed by Keith Walker.

His name is incorrectly listed as Michael Walsh on the foreclosure paperwork at the end of the film.

In the novelization, he is instead named Andrew Walsh. In the novel's epilogue, he obtains a restraining order against the country club, and then purchases the organization with the money rewarded for the remaining gems stolen from One-Eyed Willy's stash.
