Born in Ireland of German parents, Mícheál grew up in County Mayo and represented his County in the 2009 All Ireland minor football final at Croke Park against Armagh.

Mícheál made his League of Ireland debut at Sligo Rovers in 2009. Having first appeared as an unused substitute in the latter stages of the season, he made one league appearance in the second last game of the season, starting between the posts in a 3-1 defeat against Bohemians at Dalymount Park on 30th October, before moving to Athlone Town in 2010.

He made his league bow for Athlone on 17th July 2010 in a 2-1 defeat away to Longford Town and was ever present for Brendan Place's side for the remainder of the season, racking up 15 league appearances. Similarly in 2011 he missed just six league games under new boss Mike Kerley, adding 27 league appearances to his total.

In December 2011 Míchéal signed for Roddy Collins at Monaghan United. But, just six months later, on 18 June, Monaghan withdrew from the league and Míchéal signed for Mick Cooke at Drogheda United on 9 July. He went on to only play 1 league game in the 2012 season for Drogheda, a 1-0 loss to UCD but Mícheál fared better in the 2013 season, making 14 league appearances for the club and keeping seven clean sheets in those games. Mícheál also played in two Cup finals that year as Drogheda fell at the last hurdle in both the EA and FAI Cups.

Mícheál stayed with Drogheda for the 2014 season and played 16 times for Drogheda in the league, keeping six clean sheets as they finished ninth in the Premier Division. But in 2015 he nailed down the keeper's jersey and played in all 33 league games in a season that saw Drogheda United relegated on the last day of the season. However, his performances were appreciated and he was included in the PFAI Team-of-the-Year.

In November 2015, Mícháel returned to Sligo Rovers for a second spell and was again first-choice keeper, making 25 league appearances before injury ruled him out of the final two months of the season. In June 2018, Michael and Sligo parted ways via mutual consent after the shot stopper had failed to make himself the number one keeper in the first half of the season.
