Daniel O’Donnell and his family are mourning the tragic passing of Tom Roche, beloved father to Daniel’s wife Majella.
Daniel was midway through his UK tour when news came that Tom had suffered a brain haemorrhage and was in hospital in Tenerife in critical condition. Daniel immediately cancelled the remainder of the tour to join his family at the hospital in Tenerife to be with his father in law. Tom sadly passed away on the evening of the 15th October, surrounded by his family.
It has been a difficult past few months for Majella, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to undergo treatment. On the 13th September, she shaved her head on television in Ireland on RTE “Late Late Show”, raising close to a staggering €400,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.
Our give our deepest condolences to Daniel, Majella and all their family.
