The All Ireland Talent Show – Series 1 & 2

The first series of The All Ireland Talent Show was broadcast in January 2009. The show, hosted by Gráinne Seoige, is an entertainment show that calls on Ireland’s most talented to step forward and show the nation what they’ve got. Showcasing a vast array of the most engaging, exciting, impressive and entertaining talents this country has to offer.

Each region is championed by a celebrity judge who has the task of choosing the eight most talented acts in their respective region.

  • The North by Dana Rosemary Scallon
  • The South by John Creedon
  • The East by Bláthnaid Ní Chofaig
  • The West by Dáithí Ó Sé
  • Dublin by Shane Lynch

Then, it’s time to take it to the live shows where the audience at home decides the fate of each act and who will make it through to the Grand Final.

This competition pitted region against region and act against act all in the hopes of reaching the final show and ultimately winning the phenomenal prize of €50,000.
