313,000 viewers watch inspirational Michael on RTE

A youngster from Killarney racked-up over 313,000 views and was trending on Twitter with thousands calling him ‘inspirational’, following the screening of his RTE documentary on Monday night.

‘When Michael Met Davy’ was shown at 6.30pm, and documented Michael O’Brien’s appearance on the Late Late Show last November, where he met his hero, Wexford Hurling Manager, Davy Fitzgerald. The youngster, who is visually impaired, was also invited to give an inspirational talk to the Wexford Hurling team, as well as given a trip to Croke Park for this year’s All-Ireland Football Final.

Croke Park tweeted ‘‘Dream Big’ is Michael’s motto and we couldn’t agree more. We can’t wait to welcome Michael to #CrokePark on All-Ireland Final day for the game and a VIP tour of the GAA Museum and Stadium. What a true inspiration he is to everyone!’

The programme is currently available on the RTÉ Player.
