It was a case of step aside, Storm Desmond, as Storm Daniel swept into town bright and early on Saturday.
Hundreds of Daniel O’Donnell devotees braved treacherous weather conditions to queue from 6am to meet their idol and secure tickets to his five-date concerts in Killarney next year.

Tickets were snapped up rapidly and his August dates in the INEC Killarney have sold out.

All ages could be seen in the long line at the venue and no one went home disappointed as the Donegal superstar was delighted to meet and greet his fans, sharing a warm chat with all and the occasional kiss on the cheek delivered to a few delighted ladies.

The star, who last year was inducted into the prestigious Order of Innisfallen for his services to tourism in Killarney, will return to INEC next August where some 20,000 music lovers will descend on the venue to enjoy his performances on August 9, 10, 12, 13 and 14.

Over the last three months Daniel has participated in BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing and UTV Ireland series Daniel & Majella’s BnB Road Trip, which has sent his popularity soaring even higher.

Last month Daniel released his latest studio album ‘The Hank Williams Songbook’ which is still riding high in the charts in Ireland and the UK.

London-based South Kerry man, Dan Tim O’Sullivan, will exercise his rights as a Freeman of the city by herding sheep over a London bridge on Sunday.

Mr O’Sullivan from Kells, was awarded the Freedom of the City of London in 2019, in recognition for his work in the construction industry.

He employs over one thousand people through his labour hire firm ‘Danny Sullivan and Sons’, and has employed countless Kerry people, many of them from his native South Kerry, since its foundation in the mid-1980s.

The Freedom of the City of London allows the bearer to herd one hundred sheep over the landmark Tower Bridge.

However, logistical issues and traffic management plans mean the number of sheep has been reduced to less than 10 and the event will now take place over nearby Southwark Bridge.

London-based news channels, including the BBC, are expected to cover the event while hundreds of his family and friends from South Kerry will be in London to witness the unique event.
