Daniel O'Donnell

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I would bet that there are very few fans of Daniel O'Donnell among the Irish bloggers. I'd love to be able to say I stand outside the crowd on this, except I'd probably be physically ill. I cannot stand Daniel O'Donnell.

When I first "experienced" O'Donnell through the television I couldn't believe anyone that syrupy could actually have a large fan base, but he did. Then I heard he had a fairly big following in Britain too. "At least nobody in America has heard of him", I thought.

Well . . . it seems I may not be right on that account either. There are some very unwell people in both western Pennsylvania and Wisconsin (and, I assume, elsewhere). Oh God.
