Ireland’s most famous singing teacher has admitted she didn’t have a clue who Daniel O’Donnell was when he came to her for lessons.Dr Veronica Dunne has trained many of the world’s greatest singers in a career that has spanned more than four decades.But she didn’t realise who megastar Daniel was – until she saw him on television. Daniel, 49, pestered Dr.Dunne for lessons after calling her a number of times at her home in Dublin.“He arrived with the most beautiful bunch of flowers but I honestly didn’t know who this man was. I couldn’t see him behind the flowers.“He had a beautiful soft and lilting Donegal accent but I didn’t want to ask him his name.“He wanted me to listen to his records but I just wanted to hear his voice and some scales,” she said. It was only when the famous Opera singer saw the Donegal star on a television commercial that she realised who he was.“I was shocked when I realised it was Daniel. Soon after that I told him that I didn’t think I could do anymore for him.“I didn’t want to strengthen his voice too much that he would lose that lovely lilting quality it has.“I think he understood what I was saying because he never came back to me after that,” she revealed.Ends DANIEL WHO?
