Daniel and Majella ‘thrilled’ to enjoy first night in new Donegal home

first_imgDaniel and Majella O’Donnell have finally been allowed to move back into their home in Kincasslagh following an extensive revamp. There was much excitement last year when the couple volunteered to let celebrity architect Dermot Bannon renovate their coastal home for a special edition of RTE’s Room to Improve. Although the project took much longer than expected, Daniel and Majella have shared their delight with being able to spend their first night back in their own home today.“Dermot has done a fantastic job and we are thrilled,” Daniel told his Facebook followers, sharing a photo to show off his new bright and modern kitchen.

Fans of Room to Improve will know that Dermot often goes above and beyond the budget limits when his design dreams take hold, but Daniel was less than happy to learn about his pricing.Speaking on Ireland AM last week, Daniel said he’s worried about what footage the episode will show from his exchanges with Dermot:“I’m not sure what’s going to be on TV. I’m kind of worried about because I was like a dog,” Daniel said. “We did have a couple of issues and let’s just say we both got our own way,” Majella said. The couple had hoped to improve just three rooms in the house, but when Dermot came along he put the building through a total transformation.Despite their disagreements, Majella and Daniel said they were happy to eventually follow his directions.“There’s no point in having somebody like Dermot, with the ability, the vision, the know-how and experience and then be telling him what he should do,” Daniel said.Now that the O’Donnells are delighted with the outcome, fans have sent many warm wishes of health and happiness to them in their newly-designed home. Fans are now eagerly awaiting the upcoming season of Room to Improve to peek inside the couple’s contemporary space by the sea.Daniel and Majella ‘thrilled’ to enjoy first night in new Donegal home was last modified: February 6th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:daniel o’donnellDermot BannonMajella O’DonnellRoom To ImproveRTElast_img read more
