The wife of singer Daniel O’Donnell, Majella, who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, evoked the emotion of a nation on Friday night when she had her head shaved live on the Late Late Show for the charity.
The reaction was such that the website of the Irish Cancer Society crashed.
“The flood of goodwill after Majella on the Late Late Show has crashed our text and website,” the charity said.
Donations have been pouring in since Majella’s brave Late Late Show appearance.
The charity has already received an estimated €250,000 in donations following the live broadcast.
