Though it was never explicitly confirmed whether she enjoyed the music of Daniel O’Donnell, it’d be a safe one to assume, right? It’s a nun thing, surely?

Yep. The Daniel O’Donnell stan in the ad for Gas Networks Ireland (who tells Daniel she’d “like him to leave” after offering his repairs service) is also Sr Assumpta. What are the odds?
