Daniel fans queue up to sleep in
DANIEL O'Donnell fans
are queuing up to sleep in a guesthouse bed their
idol slept in – and even want to know what side of
the mattress he spent the night on.
Anne Sheerin shot to fame last year when the Donegal
singer (54) and his wife Majella (56) stayed at her
B&B in Tulsk, Co Roscommon, as part of their new

viral as people enjoyed her anxious wait for the
crooner to arrive at the door as she excitedly
exclaimed: "Wow, he’s here!"
Ms Sheerin revealed she
has now named the luxury bedroom after Daniel with
his super-fans booking years in advance to sleep in
the same bed.
"I actually got a phone-call this morning booking
for December 2018 all because of Daniel," a
delighted Ms Sheerin said as she joined the
O'Donnells on the 'The Ray D'Arcy Show' on Saturday
"When (guests) call me they just want to know where
was Daniel and Majella's room - so I take them to
the 'Daniel and Majella Suite' at Anne's B&B," she
"And (when) you take them to the suite, they say
'which side of the bed did Daniel sleep on?' she
laughed, adding, "how do I know which side of the
bed Daniel slept on?"
A clearly amused but discreet Daniel told her he
slept on "whatever side Anne says".
The B&B host (59) has enjoyed a whirlwind 12 months
since she hosted the popular couple and said it has
been the "best year of (her) life”.
The O'Donnells, who have just returned from a
relaxing four-month world cruise, appeared with Ray
D'Arcy to promote the second series of Daniel and
Majella's B&B Road Trip.
Filming is set to begin on the new series early next
