Shercock's Brendan McCahey was last night crowned the winner of The Voice of Ireland. Mentored by Bressie, Brendan was the only contestant in the current series to receive the maximum score of 10 (twice) and had been a bookies' favourite.Thanks to his triumph, Brendan has received a €100,000 recording contract with Universal Music.
The Anglo-Celt spoke to a delighted Brendan McCahey this morning following his win last night. "Isn't it amazing after all this time to be here now. There's a sense of relief that it's over a sense of achievement that I won and an overall sense of delightment. I see it as a progression to something else, I don't look at is as the end of the show, more like the beginning of a new phase, I'm really delighted that everything went so well" he said.
There'll be a civic reception for Brendan tonight at 8pm in Carickmacross. "A few friends are getting a trailer organised for a little gig rig in the town, so I can come back and sing a few songs and just thank everybody for all their support." he enthused
Here's Brendan dueting with Jerry Fish on last night's final show, we think they're perfectly matched. Well done Brendan!
