The search for the next big country music star on TG4’s Glór Tíre will resume on Tuesday April 6 at 9:30pm, following a temporary postponement due to a Covid-19 incident.

The series which began in January was due to air the finals in March.

The final contestants left in the competition are Emma Donohue from Ballinasloe who is mentored by Mike Denver, David Connor from Claremorris in Co. Mayo, Mary Hoey from Cullyhana in Armagh, and Tilly Dawson-Stanley from Glasson, Westmeath.

Voting was suspended but all votes that have been cast to date will be valid once the competition recommences.

Chantelle Padden, a former contestant of Glór Tíre who recently took part in the tenth series of The Voice UK will be performing live on the semi-final show on April 6.

Chantelle, from Belmullet, Co. Mayo was the only Irish singer picked of the final 60 contestants selected from 100,000 people who applied to take part in The Voice UK following seven auditions to be in the final 60.
