Hi from Daniel.

Sorry I haven’t written in a while but there was a problem with the website and thankfully now it’s all sorted.

Majella and I are now back at home after having a wonderful time on our extended holiday. We got to see so many places and experience so many different cultures while we were on our 4 month cruise and we had such a fantastic time. We really enjoyed having the time off to spend together, it was just what we needed.

It’s been really busy since we came home. Our daughter Siobhan got married in Spain at the end of May and we had a wonderful day. I’m sure you will have seen the pictures on the website already. We had the pleasure of having our granddaughter, Olivia for 10 days while Gavin and Siobhan were on their honeymoon. She is the light of our lives and a joy to be with.

We have just finished travelling around Ireland recording the 2nd series of the B&B roadtrip. We had so much fun meeting people in the different places we stayed. This show is scheduled to air on RTE 1 television in January.

Last week I got to present the inaugural RTE Irish country music awards. It was a great night for Irish country music and I don’t think such a gathering of stars in one place has happened before.

I just want to thank all of you who bought tickets for our Christmas show’s in Dublin in December, they sold out in record time. Myself, Mary duff and the band will be joined by The Presentation Choir from Kilkenny following their successful stint on Britain’s Got Talent.

In the immediate future it’s down to rehearsal’s with the new band as we prepare for our first shows back on the road in Killarney in August.

I hope everything is well with you.

Take care until the next time, God Bless

Daniel
