Romantic Dan sings for bride
SINGER Daniel O'Donnell
delighted a bride at the weekend by singing at her
wedding in the same chapel he serenaded her
newly-wed parents 38 years previously.
The romantic crooner (55) revealed he was delighted
to sing at the happy wedding of Maria Doherty from
Dungloe, Co Donegal, to her fiance Brendan Weldon.

He told how he sang at
Maria's mum and dad's wedding in 1979 when he was
the tender age of 17 and unaware of the meteoric
singing career that was his to come.
"Today, I had the pleasure of singing in the church
at the wedding of this lovely couple Maria and
Brendan. 38 years ago I sang at Maria's parents
Kathleen Anne and Seamus' wedding," Daniel told
Facebook followers with a photo of the happy event.
As wedding singers go, it was a big coup for
newly-married Brendan and Maria who had the sell-out
country king all to themselves on their special day.
And dapper Daniel, who resumes his Irish tour on
August 8, made sure he looked the part with a smart
haircut, light plaid blue-grey jacket, dark trousers
and slim black tie.
The kind wedding gesture went down a storm with the
Kincasslagh performer's thousands of social media
"You are a wonderful generous man (Daniel). Giving
up your time to be at these weddings, even 38 years
ago. You also stay behind after your concerts so
people can meet you. Not many celebrities do that,"
said English superfan Susan.
