Michael Flatley between the jigs and the reels

Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley has told of how he's loving life away from the media spotlight.

The 54-year-old admitted that his wild days are over and that he now prefers to spend quality time at home with his wife Niamh, whom he married in 2006, and their son Michael.

"My son has been busy teaching me things about Formula One, kick-boxing and cage-fighting," he said.

The 'Riverdance' star stepped out for a rare public appearance to support the launch of 'A Musical Vision', a traditional music CD, in aid of ChildVision in Dublin last night.

"Hopefully, I'll play a tune with the kids. It'd be a dream for me to play with them," he said.
