The Funeral Mass of one of Ireland’s top promoters and managers in show business Kieran Cavanagh will take place tomorrow.

Kieran passed away on Tuesday at the age of 67 following an illness.

A native of Easkey in West County Sligo, Kieran was manager of country music legend Daniel O’Donnell.

Having held the position of promoter for Daniel O’Donnell in Ireland, he  took over the role as manager of the Donegal native in 2015.
