6.9915.00

Description

In the second recording, Michael recalls his time as a driver for Dan Morrissey T.D. While he himself was not driving Charles Haughey, he was very well informed by other drivers of Mr. Haughey’s less than mannerly treatment of them. Michael explains the logistics and system involved in driving the government ministers and relates that Paddy O’Neill was his superior during most of his career as a driver. He describes humorously the occasions when Minister Erskine Childers would decide to take the wheel himself much to the consternation of the appointed driver. Michael served as the very first driver to the newly-appointed Minister Jack Lynch. He retired in 1981.
