Hello everyoneIt is hard to believe that it is September already, the year just flew by and the weather was not really good at all, so much rain and not enough sunshine, I just made the most of the nice dry days, time my garden and walks around the Lake. Some Countries had bad weather throughout the summer so we didn’t do too bad here.
I have done four of my concerts now and I really enjoyed all of them, Killarney was a big one for me on the 17th August, I felt so humble, the amount of fans and friends that came to see my show was unbeiievable, we had a great night and it was so nice to meet everyone after the show.
My next concert is on the 10th September in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, it is always special to do a concert in your home County and I look forward to seeing lots of my neighbours and friends from home. My last two concerts are in October one in Ennis and the last one in Tipperary.I have enjoyed this year and my concerts were such a success. I would like to thank everyone who came out to my special shows and a special big thank you to Trudi Lalor and Billy Morrissey for all of the hard work and dedication throughout the year and mostly for believing in me, two very special people.
My show “Opry le Daniel”which was recorded live in the Millennium Forum, Derry will be aired on Christmas Eve as a “Christmas special” Daniel hosted the show and we sang a duet, I aslo sang ‘A Love That Lasted Through The Years” with Shunie Crampsie the duet Big Tom and myself recorded, Shunie wrote it so it was fitting for us both to sing it as my pal was not here to do so, such a beautiful song. I really enjoyed the recording of the show and I look forward to sitting down Christmas Eve with feet up in front of a roaring fire and watching the show with some friends. I will post the exact time at a later date.
Last month I lost a dear friend Ellen Holland from Roscrea, we had been friends forever and I miss her. (R.I.P.)
I am hoping to go into the studio later on to record a few new songs and I have some filming to do for a documentary about my life which will shown on R.T.E. t.v. in the New Year. That is all the news for now.
Until the next time take care and be good to one another as we don’t know what will happen tomorrow.
