Published in Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram from June 17 to June 18, 2008. PORTLAND - Michael Joseph O'Brien, local Irish musician, died peacefully after fighting a brave and courageous battle with cancer, on Sunday, June 15, 2008, at home surrounded by family and friends. He was born on Feb. 4, 1947, in Tippery, Ireland, the son of James and May Power O'Brien. He was raised in Midleton, County Cork, Ireland, and attended boarding school in Mount Mellary. Michael was formerly part of the music group McTeggerts and for the past 25 years was a solo musician. He played the guitar, drums and other instruments as well as sang. This was a significant accomplishment considering that he was legally blind. He toured in Ireland, Scotland, England, the United States and performed twice at Carnegie Hall. Many will also remember him from his performances at Mul's Irish Pub in Portland. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday, June 18, at 10:30 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 307 Congress St., Portland. Interment will be in Calvary Cemetery.
