I’m very sad to hear of Micky’s passing and my condolences to his family.
Micky was a gentleman through and through. A kind word to say about everyone and always laughing and joking and enjoying singing and playing his accordion. He knew everyone’s name and always made time to talk no matter how busy he was. Leeds AFC has lost a legend, everyone that knew him has lost a friend and Cork City has lost a true character. Rest in peace Mick.
