“We've done a lot of telly in 10 years together, but we've never had a reaction like this before. Some moments are special I guess, you just don't realise it 'til you're in the midst of it. Danny Boy was that kind of moment last night with Jimmy and Barry.
I can't answer all the messages individually, so I'll just say a collective Thank you to you all! We really appreciate it!”

I better go because An Ceili Mor is in full swing!”
