Euro-flop McCauls bid for UK stardom

FORMER Eurovision contestants Donna and Joe McCaul are moving to London in the hope of finally cracking the big time.

Donna revealed to the Herald that Joe was jetting out to London as she awaits confirmation of her place in the televised auditions of The Voice UK.

The 28-year-old singer from Athlone has had several disappointments during her 10-year musical career but remains determined to continue.

"I will keep at it until I make it," she said.

She and her brother Joe won RTE's talent show You're A Star in 2005. They represented Ireland in the Eurovision in Kiev that year but were knocked out in the semis. An onslaught of media criticism followed.
