Buncrana student over the moon after country music idol Denver drops into Scoil Mhuire
They say you should never meet your idols, but this was certainly not the case for one Buncrana schoolboy this week.
Scoil Mhuire student Peter Doherty had all his prayers answered last Monday afternoon as he could the chance to meet, talk to and pose for photographs with his biggest idol, country star Mike Denver.
The County Galway man surprised the 13-year-old after he received a letter from Peter, which had been sent to him by Peter’s English teacher, a couple of months ago. Peter and the rest of the pupils in his class had been tasked to write a letter to their greatest idol as part of their homework, with Peter picking the country star.
His teacher had been so moved by the letter that she decided to send it directly to Denver himself, much to the delighted of Peter, who has been a fan of Denver’s for many years, travelling around Donegal with his mum Teresa to watch the Country Singer.
