During a three week trip to Cape Town in January 2016, Michael Durham met up with old school friend Michael O’Neill for the first time in 54 years. Fellow 1960 leavers, both gentlemen played rugby together at school, in the highly successful team captained by Richard Greenwood.
Michael O’Neill has been living in South Africa since 1971, after moving there to pursue a very successful career in the food sector. The two Michaels (accompanied by their wives) thoroughly enjoyed their leisurely 4 hour lunch, reminiscing and catching up with one another. They had last seen each other in 1962, when Michael Durham accompanied Michael O’Neill to a party….and met his future wife Barbara!
