March 4th 2015, Hello from Daniel

Hello there. I hope everything is good with you. I’m now back in Tenerife having taken part in the Gertrude Byrne Irish cruise of the Caribbean. As always the cruise was a huge success. I enjoyed meeting up with all the other entertainers. It’s always a treat to see them perform and every one was fantastic in their own right. This being my third time on the cruise, a lot of the people who regularly travel with Gertrude were familiar to me so it was like meeting up with old friends. It really is a fun week  and it’s so nice to be able to relax and meet people throughout the ship. Usually the meetings are at the midnight buffet, that we would be better staying away from! They are not good for the waistline!

As some of you may already know, prior to our boarding the ship there was a terrible tragedy when Martin O Connor, a member of Declan Nerney’s band, was killed in a road accident in Fort Lauderdale. It was a huge shock to everyone. Our deepest sympathy is extended to his wife Valerie, his children and all of his family.

We are having a very relaxing time here in Tenerife. Since I last wrote we’ve had some wonderful news. Siobhan and her fiancé Gavin are going to make us grandparents in July. We are so excited and can hardly wait for the baby’s arrival. Majella is already knitting and crocheting blankets and toys of all sorts. A few days ago my nephew Chris and his wife Kelly became proud parents for the first time of a beautiful baby girl called Molly . They are all doing very well and we’re absolutely delighted for them.  Chris is my brother James’ son.

As some of you may know Mary Duff is touring with Dominic Kirwan at the minute. They have just released a new single called “Paradise tonight” it’s a great song so have a listen out for it.

That’s about all the news I have for you now,

Regards Daniel
