There is no doubt in my mind that Michael loved Ireland. Maybe it was the stories about the fairies and the leprechauns. Maybe it was the music and the dancing, especially the Irish reel. Whatever it was, Michael knew he had found tranquillity for himself and his three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket.
A friend of his, Michael Flatley (aka the Lord of the Dance), said, "I knew Michael as a man, not just a performer, and he was a great man."
