Hello Sheila, sincere sympathy to you and Mikes family. Many a good chat we had on the Enjoy Travel trips to Spain. I remember one morning in Ibiza about 5am we were ready for bed and Michael said “Paddy bring that acoustic guitar out to the pool and we will sing Mc Cafferty” Mike produced two Bacardi so that’s what we did. RIP Mike
