There is an almost Louisiana Cajun bayou country mystique to the series title Opry le Daniel. But when you bring it all back home, it is Daniel O’Donnell crossing over from Donegal to the Millennium Forum Theatre in Derry to host seven nights of country shows for TG4.

The show moved from Newry to Derry last year and the city where the Foyle waters flow proved an excellent venue with the Big Tom Show – the crowning glory of what proved to be a major success story for TG4.
