May 1st 2015, Hello from Daniel

Hello there,


Just thought I would check in with you. We’re still in Tenerife and will be until the 14th of May. We are having a lovely relaxing time. We’ve  had a few friends visit us and its lovely to catch up with people we haven’t seen for a while.

Our house is in the South of Tenerife and for Majella’s birthday, we travelled to the North which is about an hour and a half away to Puerto de la Cruz. We stayed there for a few days to celebrate her birthday. We really had a lovely time. The north of the island is very different to the south, because they get more rain there is a lot of vegetation,  trees, flowers and greenery that you don’t see in the south. It was almost like being back at home. It was so nice to wake up in the morning and smell the newly cut grass.

I have been playing a bit of golf but it’s the same old story I’m afraid and not getting much better.I don’t think Rory Mc Elroy has to worry just yet. Siobhan has just left after spending a few days with us. She is doing really well and only has 3 months to go until the arrival of her baby. So the excitement is building.

It’s only a few weeks now until our show in Dungloe for the hospital. Just to fill those of you in on what’s happening with the organisation of the event. In relation to the seating the organisers have hired 1500 seats for the concert that will be available on the day for sale at €5 . It will be on a first come first serve basis so I would urge those of you who want seats to get there early. The show starts at 1pm. As well as the concert there will be lots to do for children so it really is a great day for all the family and so much for everyone to enjoy.

We are looking forward to a great day at the concert. For myself and the rest of the family it will be tinged with sadness, as it was on that day last year that my mother passed away. I know she would be delighted that this concert is taking place, to raise funds for the hospital where she got such great care during her final days.  So hopefully she’ll send the sunshine our way on the day.

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

Take care and hopefully see some of you in Dungloe on the 17th!
