Watching Alan Shatter on Brendan O'Connor's Cutting Edge, I thought of my old drinking buddy Michael Noonan.

Did I ever tell you about my old drinking buddy Michael Noonan? It was the early 1990s, a time when admittedly I had quite a few drinking buddies in the bars of the Baggot Street district, and for a while Michael Noonan was one of them.

Now I wouldn't say we were great mates, we would never arrange to meet or anything of such an intimate nature, but there were nights when we'd find ourselves in the same drinking space, and frankly we would get along quite well.
