Artist Mick Mulc­ahy’s other half Vera suf­fers loss

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE -

My favourite Ir­ish artist — af­ter Guggi — Michael Mulc­ahy was in Ger­many last week rep­re­sent­ing Ire­land at Euro Expo. (Sure, isn’t that glob­ally feted char­ac­ter Michael (pic­tured right) al­ways rep­re­sent­ing Ire­land wher­ever he goes, any­way?) His soul­mate and muse of seven years, Water­ford artist Vera Whe­lan, didn’t join him in Trier, sadly.

Sadly, be­cause Vera’s lovely mother Mary passed away three weeks ago and Vera was feel­ing, as she told me, “too vul­ner­a­ble’’. It is a tough one when you lose your mother.

“She was ready to go and then she just died in her sleep. So that helps to know that my lovely mum died a peace­ful death.

“A week be­fore she died, she had a dream she was very happy in heaven with her beloved Joe.”
