International singing star Daniel O’Donnell from Donegal is in Ros na Rún to officially open the brand new Siopa XL on Thursday May 3rd.  Daniel O’ Donnell’s visit certainly creates a stir in the village, the red carpet is laid out, the Céad Míle Fáilte is in the air, but in true soap opera style, the day does not go according to plan for some residents. Will Daniel get to cut his Siopa XL ribbon at all? Or will Vince be left red faced!

Vince is brimming with pride as he prepares to welcome Ros na Rún’s VIP guest but he’s not without competition for Daniel’s attention. When Bobbi Lee hears of her long time hero coming to Ros na Rún, she sees this as a real chance at stardom. Being a barmaid in Tigh Thaidhg has only ever been a stop gap for the overly ambitious Blonde, she’s now destined for the world stage.

Glamming up in her stage outfit, Bobbi Lee, with guitar in hand, heads to Siopa XL to duet with Daniel.  Being in the right place at the right time has always been Bobbi Lee’s motto when it comes to becoming famous, but today could be different!  A chance meeting with Caitríona enroute leaves Blue Eyes ‘Bobbi Lee’ singing in the rain!!

No welcome to Ros na Rún is complete without a cupán tae from local B&B host Máire.  Daniel’s refusal of her best china cup leaves her speechless for once, but she is not the only one.  Lippy Tadhg Ó Direáin is never short of a jibe or two, he usually has the final word but is also left speechless when Daniel puts him back in his box.

Don’t forget to Remember to Watch Ros na Rún on TG4, Thursday 3rd May 8.30pm with an omnibus on Sunday 6th May at 7.30pm
