first_imgDaniel O’Donnell has admitted his upcoming fundraising concert in Dungloe will be very difficult as it falls almost on the anniversary on the death of his beloved mum Julia.Daniel and late mum Julia.Julia passed away in the early hours of May 18th last year at Dungloe Community Hospital, aged 94.A fundraising concert which Daniel was due to play later that day was cancelled because of his mum’s death. The star vowed to fulfil his promise and despite vowing to take it easy for 2015, will now play the show in just two weeks time.But Daniel admitted “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.”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 . Daniel added “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.”Daniel is still in Tenerife with wife Majella but will jet into Donegal on May 14th.“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.”And the star admitted that his golf game is getting no better despite a lot of practise. “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.”And he also revealed that himself and wife Majella are now looking forward to becoming grandparents with Majella’s daughter Siobhan heavily pregnant.“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.”DANIEL ADMITS CONCERT WILL BE HARD AFTER LOSS OF BELOVED MUM was last modified: May 2nd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:concertdaniel o’donnelldonegaldungloemum Julialast_img
