He has lived through the Spanish Flu pandemic, World War I and World War II, Ireland's fight for Independence, the Moon Landing, the Wall Street Crash and has seen and done much so it is no surprise that Michael O'Connor is now happy to sit back and relax at the grand old age of 107.

Sitting at his home in Muckross Michael O'Connor, marked his 107th birthday yesterday, Tuesday, with a glass of champagne, as he recalls his life-time of achievements.
