Being a finalist in the Talent Nation Ireland competition was fantastic, I really didnt know what to expect when the finale day arrived. Arriving at the venue and meeting the Talent Nation team put me at ease, they were so nice, friendly and organised! Making it through to the finale was tough, first having to win in your category in the semi-final. We did a run through for the performance on the night and then hitting the dressing rooms for hair and make up!

Alan Young and FM104’s Emma Nolan were presenters on the night, asking each of the twelve contestants questions about their skills and business. It was then over to the audience and judges to select the over winner. Congratulations to film director Rachel Scully, on her win and to the Talent Nation team for such a wonderful experience.
