Just arrived back this moring from Canada. We had a very good stay both in Branson and Niagra Falls where our shows were well attended and the audiance were fantastic. While in Branson, as usual I got to see lots of other shows and each one was terrific! As always, I can recommend Branson as a holiday destination if entertainment is top of your list.
Our shows are finished for this year, the next being the cruise in February. However, I will be doing radio and television work between now and December the 20th, so it will be a busy enough time for me until then. The only public appearence I will be making is in Dungloe on Sunday 4th December when I will be officially turning on the christmas lights and i'm sur we will have a few songs! Thats just in case any of you are within striking distance of Dungloe!
Of Course on the 12th, it's no secret that I will be clebrating my 50th birthday. Majella and I are going away for a couple of days, but I don't know where yet!
But I have insisted and she has assured me that it will be somewhere quiet and lowkey.
As well as all the recordings you are aware of I have also recorded the christmas song "I'll be home with bells on" with a young singer here in Ireland called Lisa McHugh. I'm sure if you visit Lisa's website you will find out more about that. Another exciting venture for me was to record my first ever full song in the Gaelic Language. The song is an irish version of "You Raise Me Up" and is called "Le Cuidiu De". Its from an album of the same name featuring many Donegal artists. All the songs on the album are in the irish language and the proceeds from the cd are going to Donegal Hospice.
Instead of having christmas this year Majella is going to spend it in Tenerife with Michael and her parents. Siobhan is in Australia and I am staying in Donegal with my mother and family in Kincasslagh. I will then join Majella in Tenerife on the 27th December where we will spend the New Year.
I just want to thank you all for another great year and I hope you will have a very happy and peaceful christmas.
