DANIEL INDUCTED INTO COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME ON LATE LATE SHOW COUNTRY SPECIAL

Daniel has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Friday night’s Late Late Show Country Special.

Only the second person ever to receive the industry’s highest accolade, Daniel follows in the footsteps of the late Mainliners front man Big Tom, who received the award in 2016. Daniel was presented the award following a much anticipated duet of the Roger Miller classic “King of the Road” which he performed with Late Late Show host Ryan Tubridy.

Daniel said: “I am truly honoured to receive this award and to follow such a great as Big Tom. It means so much to me to be acknowledged by my peers here in Ireland”.  Ryan Tubridy commented “Daniel has been a firm friend of the Late Late Show for such a long time, and it was our absolute pleasure to play a part in recognising the extraordinary contribution that he has made to the country music industry in Ireland. We wish him nothing but continued success and happiness in all that he does”.

Fr. Brian D’Arcy, who presented Daniel with the award, said: “Nobody deserves the award more than Daniel. It’s only the second time this award has been presented, the other recipient being the late Big Tom. It is in recognition of what he has done for country music, not only at home here in Ireland, but across the world. Daniel is highly regarded as an international artist, especially in Nashville, the home of country music”.

DANIEL O’DONNELL VISITOR CENTRE CLOSURE

It is with regret that we announce the closure of the Visitor Centre in Dungloe.

The premises of the Stepping Stone Bar and Bank Bistro has been sold with vacant possession.

We wish to put on record our appreciation to all the visitors, the Coach Companies and Social Groups who supported the venture since 2012.  Thanks to Brid who welcomed everybody from far and near.

We are indebted to the many Television Production Companies who recorded and gave publicity to the Centre.

A very special thanks goes to Daniel and Majella for allowing us the opportunity to showcase their special moments.  We truly appreciate the time and effort they both gave to the Visitor Centre.

DANIEL O’DONNELL ALBUM ‘GOLD COLLECTION’ ENTERS UK CHARTS #9 DANIEL BREAKS HIS OWN RECORD – TOP 30 ALBUM FOR 32 CONSECUTIVE YEARS

Daniel O’Donnell, currently on tour in Australia and Asia, released a brand new album ‘Gold Collection’ last week in the UK . The album has just entered the UK charts at #9 with a bullet – expecting to move further up the charts over the next few days, cementing the star’s unbroken record of being the only artist to have had an album in the UK Top 30 for thirty two consecutive years!

The sixty track three CD compilation features recording from across his entire recording career and features duets with his long-term singing partner Mary Duff, along with special duets recorded with Loretta Lynn and Charley Pride. The album is available on CD, digitally from Amazon and as an abridged version on special heavyweight Gold vinyl. Closer to home fans of Daniel will be delighted to hear that he returns to our TV screens this Sunday evening on RTE One for his USA Roadtrip, when himself and wife Majella embark on a 1,000 mile road trip from Chicago to Minot in North Dakota.

Daniel and Majella have always dreamed of going on a road trip across America and when an invitation to play in North Dakota came up, the opportunity was too good to pass. Deciding to take a less direct route to the concert, Daniel and Majella landed in Chicago a few weeks early and took a unique road trip deep through the Mid-West of America in an RV.

However, the romance of hitting the open road in an RV is very different to the reality. The scenery of Wisconsin, Minnesota, South and North Dakota is breathtaking and the rolling plains of The Badlands are stunning, but life in an RV would test any couple as we will see in the show. There are lots of laughs, some tears and tons of surprises in Daniel and Majella’s USA Road Trip RTE One Sunday 10th March 2019. Put your seat belt on and strap yourself in for this journey of a life time.
