DANIEL AT HOME:

DANIEL AT HOME:
(MYSELF AND DANIEL IN CANADA)
In a rural part of Ireland,
With it's beauty all around.
There in the village of kincasslagh
It's so quiet one can't hear a sound.

Except for the voice of Daniel,
When he's at home in CO. Donegal.
His fans flock by the thousands
When he opens his house for all.

He is a country boy at heart,
No matter where e'er he may roam.
He is so proud of his mother and family,
And is happiest when he is at home.

His charity work is endless,
That's one thing you'll never forget.
When he saw those 500 orphans
In Romania, a place called Siret.

He has helped to transform their lives,
There is still much more work to be done.
I think from his humble beginnings
Is why his heart they have won.

So away from the footlights and fame.
Away from the make up and paint.
If one had to nominate anyone,
Surely Daniel would be Ireland's second saint.

*Daniels mother sadly passed away last year*

    Those were the days.
