“Micheáls Corner”

I never met him but I can imagine what he might have been like.  Perhaps Micheál was a great talker, a real personality, always with an opinion to share on any issue you would care to mention, (but especially if it involved politics or sport).  At the same time he seems to have liked to have his back to the wall, to sit in the corner and survey the room; perhaps to watch and weigh-up those coming in or going out.  For those that knew him this corner must seem very empty now.  But as they look up at his painting they can remember him, the laughter and the good times.  ‘Where did the time go?’ His old friends might say.  ‘One minute he was here, the next he was gone.  We thought he would always be there … but I suppose in a way he still is.’
