Michael Tierney of Ennis, July 1989

"This is a brief and rare video clip of the late Michael Tierney taken in 1989 in the town of Ennis, County Clare. He was one of the town's funniest and greatest characters. He was honest,loving, kind and totally true to himself and everyone around him. He was much loved when he was alive and delivering his newspapers and he is still loved and fondly remembered today. He was one of a kind and one of the last true personalities of his generation." Posted on Youtube on the 29th of September 2010 by bernard dilger.
