On Saturday night last in Glenties Daniel O’Donnell gave his full backing to his namesake and fellow Rosses man Conor O’Donnell who appears in the finals of Glór Tíre tomorrow night, (Tuesday.)
Daniel, who was playing his first actual dance in many years, was joined by Gary Gamble, Grainne Gavigan and Patricia Maguire in giving Connor a great send off and urged everybody in the county to get voting for Conor.
“Let’s bring the title back to the Hills” he said, “Sure it will be great to have another O’Donnell from the Rosses topping the charts when I eventually hang up the boots - mind you, he might have to wait a bit yet, I haven’t even go started yet!”
Conor’s star is very much on the rise as he looks forward to appearing on the live show on Tuesday night.
He said, “It’s all down to the wire now. I will go out there and do my very best for Donegal and hopefully you will be happy enough to give me your vote.
"I would like to thank Daniel and indeed everybody in the county and further afield who have already shown their support. You have all been great.”
