Michael Gillespie was a 5 Year Freak, having attended CAT Session 2 from 2011-2015 and was applauded the Cat King of both 2014 and 2015. Gaining notoriety in 2012, Gillespie is famed for his beautiful beard, being incredibly opinionated and argumentative, saying a ridiculous number of politically-incorrect, especially abortion, jokes, being swapped for Chuck Norris in jokes, breaking all the possible rules, and of course his accent and hailing from Donegal ( Warrior of the West he is sometimes referred to as ). Unknown to many, he is a kick-ass speech writer and ensured that any CAT he helped make an argument for a debate against CTYI, destroyed CTYI. Furthermore he built the house he was born in and instead of doing push-ups, he does earth-downs. Some of his numerous memorable incidents include ;

  • Waking all the RAs at 6am everyday for a week so they could not wake him. (Every year)
  • Playing Gay Chicken during the Med Debate and kissing the guy right in front of the TAs/TIs/his girlfriend (2014)
  • Being banned from the First Disco, three years in a row. (2011 - 2013)
  • Convincing everyone he shot and ate a pigeon for lunch one day (2015)
  • Dumping 20 packets of salt on the ARCs on the last day, yelling "YOU'VE JUST BEEN ASSUAULTED", and running away (2015)
  • Being abusive towards Sportalians (Always)
  • Making you love him even though he is somewhat outrageous <3
