The Voice of Ireland returns for a fourth season in January 2015 and RTE 2fm is once again on the hunt for its Wildcard.

Last year, the winner of the series was 2fm Wildcard Brendan McCahey, who was selected by the station's DJs.

Teh 37-year-old was the only contestant to receive a 10 throughout the entire series and he 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, Brendan, who was mentored by Bressie, won a contract with Universal Music.

This year, RTÉ 2fm has seven exclusive golden tickets that will grant their listeners a 2fm Wildcard place in the blind auditions.

To apply, listeners must submit their video via the RTÉ 2fm website: www.rte.ie/2fm. Applicants must then be available for the audition day in 2fm studios on Monday 22 September.

In keeping with the famous format of listening to the auditions blind, the 2fm DJs will not be able to see any of the people who are auditioning, nor will they be given any information about them.

Closing date for applications is midnight on Wednesday 17 September.
