Speaking at his home in Barnfield, Currow near Killarney, Michael offered fascinating insights into the origins of local place names, and the traditions surrounding holy wells and the cures they offered.

Moonlighters during the Land War (1879-82) are also recalled as are the local clergy of the time.
