Daniel O'Donnell crashed a wedding over the weekend and made everyone's day

Good on wee Daniel...

Daniel O'Donnell has been in the news a lot recently.


Firstly, he was the victim of some poor graphics by the Sky News team.

Then he got that look from Pope Francis during his performance.

And finally, he made a woman's day on a flight recently when he took a moment to sing 'Happy Birthday' to her.

All in all, an eventful few weeks. Although it's showing no signs of slowing down as on Friday night, he made another person's day when he crashed a wedding in Sligo.


Bernadette O’Dowd and Clem Duke had their wedding reception in The Radisson Blu Hotel in Sligo on Friday, and it just so happened that Daniel was staying in the hotel that night.

Suzanne McTiernan was at the wedding and speaking to JOE she said: "It was a very lively wedding but the highlight of the night was when Daniel O’Donnell walked in, asked for the bride’s mother Attracta and brought her out for a waltz.

"When he was checking into hotel, he was asked if he would surprise the mother of the bride by going into the wedding reception and giving her a dance.


"Such a gentleman he is, not only did he give Attracta a waltz but he also brought her up on stage and joined the band, The Weightless Astronauts. He had the whole floor singing along with him to the song 'This is my homeland'.

Daniel O'Donnell, the gift that keeps on giving.

Cheers to Suzanne McTiernan for sending this our way. Got a story for JOE? Fill out our online form here.
