His parents are Michael Carey (senior) from and Convoy-woman Marian Carey (nee. Doherty).Michael was in the first class to ever graduate from Coláiste Ailigh, and it’s here that he fondly looks back on as being the roots of his love for the language.“It was there that I was first introduced to Irish as a living language, having studied it only as a subject before then. My family wouldn’t be native speakers. We were the guinea pig year in Sprackburn House, which had just recently been converted from a B&B.”And what are Micheal’s thoughts on Donegal?“It’s not uncommon to tune in and see me with the Donegal scarf wrapped around my neck during pieces to camera, and I’m always trying to organise location shoots up at home. “There’s a good Donegal contingency working here in TG4, and we’re all very proud of our roots. Sometimes, it takes being away from home for a few years to realise just how much we have going for us. I lived in Dublin for close to 9 years, but I don’t know if I ever really settled there.”DONEGAL MAN BLAZING A TRAIL ON TG4! was last modified: October 5th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalMicheál Ó CiaraidhTG4last_img
