Mick Barnett

Barnett’s of Schull

Born and reared in Schull, Mick Barnett took over his father’s business over 40 years ago and since then has been supplying Schull with the essentials – and not so essential – ever since. A rite of passage for every child of the last few generations must be trying on their first school uniform and then their last! Over the years Mick has been involved in most Schull events and activities and doesn’t plan to stop any time soon! http://www.barnettsofschull.com/

  1. His favourite view is out of his sitting room window looking over the harbour and he would love something by Rory Gallagher.
  2. If he ever has any spare time he heads for the sea and some quality boating!
  3. His best night out was one of many during the summer of ’80 when his father’s dog, Parkdown Jet, won the English Derby.
  4. Definitely a Murphy’s man and his favourite pizza is one with anchovies.
  5. He can’t quite remember what he wanted to be when he was 5, but it was probably a sailor.
  6. What he would like more than anything is a really good pension!

What is it about Schull and the Mizen that attracts people here? Who are the people who populate this quirky little village on the edge of Europe? Why do they come? How do they find us? What do they DO?

Here they tell their stories, responding to the same questions they all have very different answers.
