Crowner Daniel O’Donnell spoke of his relationship with the late singer and said that Tom’s music had joined the Irish diaspora over the years.
“He touched people in Ireland and those who emigrated from Ireland On the days when so many people lived in England, and their connection to the house was all weekend music and dance, he thought so many people and so many country singers in Ireland,” said RTE Radio One .
“It’s going to be so bad, it was the biggest one.”
O’Donnell said he believed Tom’s health was worse than his wife.
“It’s so sad,” RTE Radio One said. “On the other hand, he was probably broken without his wife, Rose, perhaps for him a gift from God.
“His family, I’m sure they’re just being destroyed.
“I’m sure, since Rose died, his life was darker. Every step Tom took was a step behind him.
“I can not take anything, just today is a great gathering in heaven.”
