The death has taken place of Majella O’Donnell’s mother, Marion Roche.
Posting on his official social media channels, Daniel said she died last night surrounded by her family in St Mary’s nursing home in Galway.
“Marion was a beautiful person,” he wrote.
“Many who met her often referred to her as ‘A Lady’. I was blessed to have her as my mother in law. She will be greatly missed by her family and many friends. May she rest in peace.”
The singer also paid tribute to ‘the wonderful staff’ of St Marys for the great care Marion received since going to live there, and especially in her final days.
“The care and compassion shown to Marion and indeed her family was second to none.
Our thanks also to all the staff at Galway university hospital for their care of Marion during her recent stay there.”
