I'm crossing my fingers and toes that Daithí O' Droney will reign supreme in 'The All Ireland Talent Show' tonight.
I've made no secret of my love for Daithí's violin-driven ditties in the past and tonight looks set to be the first time in years that I vote in a reality TV show (the last time was for Anna Nolan to win Big Brother, I think). I'd encourage you to check out the stuff on his Myspace and throw a vote his way if you like what you hear.
If Daithí wins tonight, he'll walk away with €50,000, which I'm sure he'll put to good use. I've had a substantial amount of traffic to my site from google searches of variations of "all ireland talent show violin boy" so I guess that bodes well for his chances. Irrespective of the final result, I reckon he's got a bright future ahead of him.
