“Michael is travelling all around Europe for the summer and is having a ball.
“It’s great to see the young people these days being able to travel the world. There was no such thing when I was their age,” said Daniel.
The singer, 49, is staying at his home in Meenaband, West Donegal for the next few weeks.
While here Daniel has bEen catching up with the rise of wife Majella’s own showbiz career.
“I went to a cabaret in a hotel in Donegal Town called Harveys Point. Majella was singing as part of the cabaret and I have never seen her performing on her own before.
“Well I have to say she was great. Really great! I was pleasantly surprised. She had great presence and I felt very proud of her.
“They asked her to perform for the whole season but she felt that the nerves would be too much. She really enjoyed it and I believe that she is going to do another evening on 24th August for the hotel.
“Who said she was a kept woman?” he laughed.
