Daniel O’Donnell, Donegal’s renowned singer and ambassador, met the Arthur Kingsley Porter Project team in RTE on Friday, October 27th, before his appearance later that evening on The Late Late Show. Daniel was delighted to receive a copy of Glenveagh Mystery and to hear how this incredible story has created a platform for bringing tours into Donegal and other Irish counties associated with the enigmatic Professor Porter. Daniel, who hails from the village of Kincasslagh, could not have been more gracious and showed a genuine interest in the Porter Project. Daniel’s site: http://www.daniel-site.com/

Daniel wished author, Lucy Costigan, great success with Glenveagh Mystery, the book that tells the story of the life, work and disappearance of Harvard Professor and former Glenveagh Castle owner, Arthur Kingsley Porter. Daniel exuded poise and charisma as he chatted away with the Porter team. He has somehow managed to retain his humble and friendly attitude, an amazing feat for a singing legend who has sold over ten million records and who has a huge fan base all over Ireland, England, the USA and Australia.
