Daniel O'Donnell shared his lunch on Facebook and people went absolutely bananas

Irish country music star and every granny's favourite, Daniel O'Donnell, went viral on Facebook last night.

Wee Daniel took to the social media site to post about his lunch and modest cooking skills - and people lost their shit.



The post reads: "Not that I'm much of a chef but had this for my lunch today mixed with mayonnaise and red pesto and it was gorgeous."

Gorge, Daniel.

Needless to say, madness ensued.

The post has almost 5,500 likes and 800 shares - and the comments are absolute gold.

It would appear that Daniel is seeing a resurgence in popularity recently, following on from his reality television show Daniel And Majella's B&B Roadtrip, which sees the loved-up couple visit B&Bs in remote and rural parts of Ireland.

To be honest, we've been predicting a golden age for the crooner for the past few years now considering his Christmas calendar is usually the first to sell out every year.


Also, did you know that Eoin Mc Love, Daniel even has his own magazine?


It would also appear that yesterday coincides with the 22nd anniversary of Daniel's tea party, which he hosted in his mother's house.

It's not quite a Kim Kardashian 'break the internet moment' but it's probably about as close as the Donegal Diva is going to get.

And to be fair to him, he does seem to have a good sense of humour about the whole thing. He's the closest thing we have to an Irish Garth Brooks, and he's sweet as pie; we know our Daniel would never let us down.

So come one come all, and celebrate our national treasure. Everyone knows the words, right?
