It's true! I chatted with him on a bus ride between Cork and Galway back in the late '90s. Michael D is a lovely chap.

Met him at a wake a few months ago. Can confirm he's a lovely little man, though something about him reminds me of the Monopoly man... :)

I love Michael D. He is the perfect little man to represent our beautiful little country. He is our little leprechaun :)

The prefix an- means "very".

Tá sé an-tábhachtach - "it is very important"
Tá an-áthas orm - "I am very happy"
Tá an leabhar seo an-suimiúil - "This book is very interesting"
