He will appear on the show on Thursday May 3 at 8:30pm when entrepreneur Vince asks the singer to open his new Siopa XL.

The Man about town

Bobbi Lee is keen on showing off her singing skills; Máire wants Daniel to stay in her B&B and Tadhg invites him for a drink in the pub.

Will Daniel stick around or hightail it once the ribbon is cut?

Will Daniel accept Tadhg's offer?

O'Donnell said he had "great fun" filming the episode. 

"I'm a big fan of Ros na Rún and to see it in reality, it's an impressive production," he continued.  

Meet and greet!

"Growing up in Kincasslagh in Donegal, Irish language was always an integral part of the fabric of the community, so it personally gives me a great sense of pride to work in our native language. 

"I'm looking forward to tuning in on Thursday night."
