Mick had a long and successful career spanning 3 clubs: UCD; Lansdowne; and Garryowen. He attended Roscrea at the same time as Dick Spring and their rugby careers continued to be closely aligned with their captaincies of UCD and D.U.F.C. in the 1973/74 season. He unusually represented both Connaght and Munster and won two caps for Ireland in 1975 while at Lansdowne – playing against Wales and Scotland. He then went on to play for 13 years with Garryowen, whom he captained twice – the second time being the club’s Centenary year in 1984.
