Limerick success at the Oscars

This is Michael O'Connor, a past pupil of St Fergus' National School in Glin, Co. Limerick.

Last night he won an Oscar at the Academy Awards in L.A for the Costume Design work he carried out in the movie drama, "The Duchess".
Michael's father Thomas emigrated from Glin to London, where Michael was born, but the family made a number of attempts to resettle in Limerick in the 1970's, when Michael went to school at St Fergus and later at Tarbert Comprehensive.
