Singing superstar and television celebrity Daniel O'Donnell took the time between two sell-out performances in the National Opera House in Wexford this week to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Hidden Hearing clinic in Redmond Square.
Daniel who attracted capacity audiences from around the south-east to his successful Wexford shows on Sunday and Monday nights, paid a special promotional visit to the Wexford centre early on Monday afternoon.
He was greeted by the all-female staff of audiologists Yvonne Doyle (who currently holds the title of Irish Audiologist of the Year) and Grace Kelly, and receptionist Patricia Boyce.
The world-famous singer also met delighted customers and fans during the milestone event before heading back to the Opera House for rehearsals.
'As a professional musician, I am acutely aware of the importance of looking after my hearing', said Daniel who is supporting Hidden Hearing's campaign encouraging Irish people to 'test their ears at 50 years'.
Deputy Mayor of Wexford, Cllr. Maura Bell was also in attendance.
The HSE estimates there are as many as 300,000 people in Ireland with significant hearing loss. Statistically, over half the population aged between 60 and 80 are likely to have measurable hearing loss.
The Wexford Hidden Hearing clinic is part of a national network of over 82 branches conducting over 60,000 free hearing tests every year.
