Well now, let this be a lesson to anyone who dares to suggest Daniel O’Donnell is anything other than a national treasure.
Daniel’s performance at the Rose of Tralee was exactly what his fans have come to know and love about him. Except perhaps for a few interesting dance moves.
Ocean FM presenter Niall Delaney made the epic mistake of suggesting that during his recent Rose of Tralee performance, Daniel may have been singing out of tune.
Angry fans were quick to call in and debate the topic with the presenter on his North West Today radio show.
There was one particular caller however who put Niall in his place very quickly.
Ita was not impressed by the insinuation that Daniel was to blame for any less-than stellar performances and insisted that Niall apologise.
As a singer herself she wanted to know how Niall could accuse Daniel of an out of tune performance if he had no experience in the field. When she asked Niall how many times he had performed live and Niall said it “doesn’t make a difference”, Ita was very nearly fuming.
A friend of Daniel since he was 11 years of age, apparently, Ita was not going to take this lightly.
"I’m not your average people who ring you up," she informed Niall before shutting down his interruption, “When I’m talking- you listen!” We are listening Ita, trust us.
