Brendan sings his way to 'Voice of Ireland' win

37-year-old Cavan native Brendan McCahey is the oldest of the final ten - and while he's a full time dad during the week, at weekends he plays with his wedding band. Odds : 11/8

HE was the only contestant to receive a 10 throughout the entire series and last night Brendan McCahey was named as the new 'Voice of Ireland'.

The 37-year-old beat Kellie Lewis, who took second place, as well as Laura May Lenehan and Jamie Stanton, who took third and fourth places respectively.

A full-time dad and a part-time musician from Shercock, Co Cavan, he won the judges and public over with 'Can't Judge A Book' by fellow Cavan men The Strypes.

"The only thing Brendan hasn't done is gangsta rap," said his coach, Bressie.

"You are ready to record an album, you're that good."

Brendan was presented with the 'Voice of Ireland' title and he has also been given a recording contract with Universal Music.
