Mickey Harte?

Anyone remember Mickey Harte selling fish on the Diamond?

Came across this old pic here from some lad's tour of Donegal in 1988:

Mickey was a fish-monger and used to sell fish on the Diamond, which his father did before him. I alway remember me Mum sending me over on Friday's to pick up some whiting for the dinner.

Wheneven I'd be home and Mickey would see me walking past the house he'd rush out to say hello. I'd be promising to send him a postcard from Boston for years, and I never did. Mickey died a few years ago, he'll be missed and I wish I'd sent him that postcard ... :(
