Mostly, but there's a cohort of people who really don't like him - they're usually the kind of people who'd use his height and voice against him. Cunts, essentially.

Always thought he was as loveable as was possible.

From the Slane pictures to his persona!

I like him anyway

Id listen to Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh all day, he could talk about the life cycle of the earthworm and I would still enjoy his use of language and turn of phrase. Nearest living thing to a hemingway or shaw.

Anyone well known enough to be universally well known will tend to have traits or opinions that wont be popular with everyone such as micheal o'leary or christy moore.
Id add Denis Irwin to the mix though only soccer fans would love him but hes unassuming enough that people wont dislike at least.
