Michael O’Regan in Yellow

Michael O’Regan in Yellow

Michael O’Regan has been selling the Echo newspaper in this spot on Patrick Street, Cork since 1969. He was a familiar sight to generations of Cork people.

I haven’t seen him in a long time, and this photo was taken in 2006. The latest information I can find on him is a photo taken of him in January 2020 when he met the Lord Mayor of Cork, John Sheehan.
