Eoghan reveals his prized posession

HEoghan McDermott has revealed that his prized possessions is a front cover of FHM, signed by new Voice of Ireland coach Rachel Stevens, in which she was voted the sexiest woman ever.

And looking forward to the new series in January, Eoghan (above) spoke of his admiration for last year's winner, Brendan McCahey. "I thought Brendan was a real touch of class, so hopefully his album will do well."

Unfortunately for Eoghan, he seems to have missed last month's announcement that Brendan's debut album only crawled into the Irish Top 20, selling an unimpressive 300 copies.

Maybe Eoghan should spend more time looking at the news, and a bit less time admiring Rachel Stevens?

HWhile the now traditional Christmas Eve celebrity busking session took place on Grafton Street again this year, the injuries that befell Bono in Central Park earlier this month meant the great man was unable to perform as usual with the likes of Glen Hansard and Liam O'Maonlai. Instead, his place was taken by Paddy Casey ((below).

And just to put some perspective on that alternate member, while Bono and Co will no doubt fill out stadiums throughout the world on their next tour, Paddy Casey's next engagement is to support Dickie Rock at the Regency Airport Hotel on New Year's Eve. So please get well quickly, Bono. At least by Christmas Eve 2015...
