Ireland lost one of its greatest actors of television and theatre. Mick Lally, was probably best known for his role as Miley in Glenroe. His catchphrase ‘Well Holy God’ is still uttered by many round these parts.
When living in Rathmines, I’d often see Mick cycling his bike. I’d never think there’s Mick Lally, it was always ‘There’s Miley’. Mick also had some chart success with ‘The Byroad to Glenroe’ which was recorded for the tv show.
