Michael IRL (In Real Life)
Given that he played for Killanena Hurling Club in his earlier years, Michael’s still a keen follower of Clare hurling. He also enjoys getting out for a run, but since the arrival of his two young children, he gets less of a chance to do so! In relaxed mode, you’ll likely find him watching a box-set; maybe Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad.
