A Wicklow man, Michael spent all his working life in industry as a manager with Maguire & Paterson and subsequently running his own printing business. He spent a few years at the end of his career working for a local company. His retirement gave him time to relax with his favorite pastime – sailing. He was a full time carer for five years and is keen to give back some of the support that he received from Wicklow Dementia Support.
