And this is how you might be seeing him for the next few months – with a copper-coloured top!
But it’s all for a good cause.
Michael is trying to raise €2,500 for the Irish Cancer Society as part of Today FM’s Shave or Dye campaign.
And no-one appears more amused by the whole thing than his wife Edel.
That’s because Michael didn’t realise his new dye was so, well,….permanent.
“Roisin and Vicky at Patrick Gildea’s Hairdressing at the Courtyard Shopping Centre did the job for me,” said Michael.
“They did a great job of making me look totally crazy and it will last for about 3 months – I just did not know THAT when I agreed to do this stunt.
“My wife Edel laughed all the way through the process because she KNEW I was going to be like this for a lot longer than a day.”
Michael is pictured left before his do or dye effort.
