Mickey O'Donohue was, by his own admission, a drunk.
"A pretty healthy drunk, but... yeah... a drunk," he'd tell anyone who'd listen, and no one argued: partly because it was the truth but mainly because Mickey was six-six and like a mad jaguar in a fist fight. He rarely took offence, but if he did nobody was safe until the offender was either insensible or sensible enough to apologise.
"Never drink when I'm working though," he'd say proudly, but only whilst working as a heavy at the nanny shop at weekends or bartender at the Waterhole Saloon most weekdays.

    Hehe I like him but I don't trust him. But maybe I'm wrong.

    Trusting him wasn’t my first thought either, although I’d probably be happy to have a pint or two with him! 🍻
