This season we wanted to tell the story of one of our favorite customers at Cork on Ice. Coming to skate with us since we opened up 10 years ago Michael is also one of our oldest skaters. Speaking about the video, Bill Cremin of Cool Running Events said ‘we wanted to capture the magic of this inspirational story for Christmas. We invited Michael to the rink to film him skating, and then surprised him with all of his children and grandchildren. When a story is this remarkable, it has to be told!’
The video unexpectedly went viral being mentioned in local and national press, viewed tens of thousands of times online and featured on TV3, RTE and TG4.
The video can be seen in full on the Cork on Ice Facebook page here - https://www.facebook.com/CorkOnIce/videos/1246513052058487/
