When most people think of Irish country music they think of Daniel O'Donnell. Since the early 80's to now its incredible the level of success he has had consistently. Album after album, concert after concert, people long for more. I'm proud of the fact Daniel hails from the Rosses . Himself and his wife Majella who I've also featured on this podcast are a huge credit to Donegal as a county in the work they do in raising money for charity, and having helped massively in attracting so many tourists to Donegal and the Rosses over the years which of course is a very positive thing for any location. The amount of joy Daniel in particular has given to hundreds of thousands of people across the globe can only be admired really. I caught up with Daniel yesterday to see how he was coping with the current lockdown and we touched on many different topics.
To listen to 5 songs of Daniel's that he chose as songs that mean something special to him, you can hear them along with this interview by visiting the below link. The interview on its own is here to abide by platform rules.
