Majella O’Donnell

Campaigner and Broadcaster

The businesswoman and broadcaster has always spoken out about health matters and encouraged others to do the same. In September 2013, she shaved her head live on The Late Late Show – the Irish Cancer Society received €600,000 in donations after the show – a little over a week after a preventative double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. After being given the all-clear, she still campaigns to raise awareness of cancer diagnosis and cancer services. She is the founder of mental health charity Donegal Mind Wellness and a prominent support of mental health awareness. She and her husband, Daniel have recently completed a second series of Daniel and Majella’s B&B Roadtrip.
