The new Daniel O’Donnell Visitors Centre, located upstairs in the old National Irish Bank building on Lower Main Street, Dungloe, will officially open on Sunday, May 6.
Spokesperson for the new centre, Mr Pat Nora Gallagher said with ample parking in place it hoped that coach loads of visitors will be encouraged to come to see all the wonderful memorabilia on display.
“As you enter the centre for the tour, a 12-minute introduction video featuring many of Daniel’s household name friends will greet you.
“Visitors will easily be able to spend an hour at the centre admiring everything that’s on display.”
After you are introduced to Daniel, his family and his early life in West Donegal, you are then taken on a tour of his 30 years in the business from the showband days to the present day.
The standout feature at the centre will be Daniel and his wife Majella’s 2002 wedding outfits which will be displayed in a glass cabinet.
