On Friday, 'Big Mick' fulfilled one of his dreams in judo, to compete for N.Ireland in the masters event at the Commonwealth Judo C'ships. Michael trained five times a week in over the past 3 months in preparation for the event.
Participants from as far as India, Australia, South Africa and of course the Home Nations competed in a magnificent spectacle of sport.
No medals this time, but a much broader scope of success achieved in the preparation and experience. Michael has raised the bar for himself and is a role model for the young warriors coming behind him. Quinn, Conall and families would like to acknowledge Michael's support and guidance over the last few months.
