Mayo singer will get his chance to shine on Glór Tíre
The search for the next big country music star on TG4's Glór Tíre will resume on April 6 following a temporary postponement due to a Covid-19 incident. The series, which began in January, was due to air the finals this month.
Among the contestants left in the competition is David Connor from Claremorris, whose mentor is Michael English.
The other finalists are Emma Donohue from Ballinasloe (mentored by Mike Denver), Mary Hoey from Cullyhana, Armagh (mentored by The Sheerin Family) and Tilly Dawson-Stanley from Glasson, Westmeath (mentored by Cliona Hagan).
Voting was suspended at the time of the postponement but all votes that have been cast to date will be valid once the competition recommences.
Chantelle Padden, a former contestant of Glór Tíre who recently took part in the 10th series of The Voice UK, will be performing live on the semi-final show on April 6. Chantelle, from Belmullet, was the only Irish singer picked of the final 60 contestants selected from 100,000 people who applied to take part in The Voice UK following seven auditions to be in the final 60.
Glór Tíre, currently in its 17th season, is presented by Aoife Ni Thuairisg and Seamús Ó Scanláin, with help from the judges John Creedon, Caitríona Ní Shúilleabháin and Jó Ní Chéide, who advise and guide the contestants.
Viewers can cast their votes for their favourite singer by downloading the Glór Tíre app in the App Store or on Google Playstore.
