Two super talented sisters from Sligo have made it to the live television shows of Réalta Agus Gaolta at RTÉ Studios in Dublin.

Fifteen-year-old Kerry-Ann Mc Creery and her younger sister Katelyn Harrington aged 7 years old have been auditioning for the last few months to appear on television and have been successful in being chosen to perform on live television.

Réalta Agus Gaolta is a talent show on TG4 where the most talented families in Ireland battle to make it to the final stage of competition singing, dancing or playing musical instruments.

The girls reside with their parents and siblings in Strandhill, Co Sligo.

Kerry-Ann is a TY student at the Mercy College, Sligo and Katelyn is a 2nd class student of Strandhill National school.

Both girls have been working hard together during lockdown and are so privileged to be chosen as one of the most talented Families in Ireland.

Kerry-Ann is currently working on releasing her first album with UK record producers.

She has been vocally trained by Jonathan Carter from Strandhill and is currently working with Kim Hayden on releasing her original album.

She recently appeared on Fm105 radio, performed in the RDS, was Junior Eurovision finalist, Soloist Finalist, Teenstars 2nd runner up and Lead Role Annie in the Hawk's Well Theatre.

Katelyn is vocally trained and mentored by Kim Hayden, Co. Wicklow and a student of Sarah Middleton, Beat it Dance School in Strandhill.

Katelyn has performed in the Hawk's Well Theatre and The Helix theatre dancing and singing.

The two star sisters recently raised over €2000 in four hours singing on Facebook Live for Breast Cancer.

The program is due to be aired in November over a four week period where the girls will have to battle on their show week against six other families for one place in the grand final. The final is due to take place on December 27th over the Christmas break.

The girls would like to sincerely thank their parents for their on going support in reaching their dreams, their vocal coach and extended family and everyone who has supported them.

They would also like to thank Adare Productions for giving them the opportunity to perform live on television.
