2006-10-21 A thank you note from Donna

Just a note to say a big thank you for your cards and presents which was very kind of you.


Well - what a year I've had - sometimes I have to pinch myself to see if it all really happened. This time last year I was heading off to College to begin a Bachelor of Music (Hons.) Degree and out of the blue I was offered the opportunity to Tour America and Canada & Ireland with the Celtic Tenors and their Musical Director David Munro. We also went to Dubai, Oman and Munich.

As you all know, Deirdre was off travelling with the Celtic Woman Show and I was standing in for her with the CT's - I was honoured to do so, as I know how much you all love Deirdre and how highly regarded and talented she is, I felt truly privileged to take her place.

Thank you all for your warmth and friendliness, I could never have envisaged that I would sing in so many theatres, to so many audiences, and to talk to so many wonderful people, aswell as visit so many towns and cities, to be able to do all of that at such a young age is so surreal. I'll carry all those memories with me for the rest of my life. The "Boys" (James, Matthew, Niall, Daryl and David) are not just great - they are FANTASTIC ! - they are such good fun to be with, there were times when I wondered which of us was actually the Teenager ! I missed Niall of course, but Daryl is so friendly and nice and I wish both him and Niall all the best for the future.

I loved singing to you all and hopefully I will be able to do it again in the future, but for now I've returned to College and while I am studying, I will be thinking of the CT's and David and Deirdre out there meeting you all and entertaining you all. I thank God for the past year, it has been the most special year of my life so far, and I'd like to thank all the people who work behind the scenes.

Firstly Mr. Pat Egan of Pat Egan Promotions who used to manage the CT's, I will always be grateful to him for giving me this wonderful opportunity and I hope I did him proud. Thanks to Tom (sound engineer) whom I owe many a pint, Maizie who looked after us all, to the legend Martin, Brian Hand in the Office, Joyce who travelled with us in America and Canada, thanks to Beate and Anja who were so kind to me, Andy and Dale (our tour managers ), Margaret for giving me a lift in her car, Heather, Barb and Rianne for their kindness. If I've left anyone out - my sincere apologies. Finally to Matthew, James, Daryl, Niall, David and Deirdre -I will be thinking of you and missing you all - thank you all so much for giving me the opportunity to work with you, I was so proud to work with such wonderfully professional people as yourselves.


Until we meet again,
be safe, love and best wishes always,
Donna xxxxx
