Over the series the best young singers, aged 9-14, from around Ireland will compete in the competition. This year the song contest will take place in Armenia in front of millions of viewers.

The prize at stake for the eventual winner is incredible. Last year

Maiú Levi Lawlor from Greystones, Co. Wicklow rocked a full house in La Seine Musicale in Paris with his song “Saor” and was watched live on TV in 19 different countries across the continent.

Darragh has had a hectic few months of it having recently been awarded a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to go teaching Irish in the USA for the next year.

During his UCC career Darragh was a member of the An Chuallacht team which won the BréagChúirt Uí Dhálaigh moot court competition, a debating contest which has competing lawyers argue a moot legal case in front of a judge.
