Semi-Final Spot For Sarah

Scariff’s Sarah McTernan secured her place in the semi-finals of RTÉ talent show ‘The Voice of Ireland’ earlier on this evening.

Sarah performed a cover of ‘What I Did For Love’ originally performed by David Guetta and Emeli Sandé. Following her appearance on stage, McTernan received praise from Una Foden who found her voice to be unique. Bressie was confident she would advance to the semi-finals but urged Sarah to push herself and step out of her comfort zone.

Coach to Sarah, Rachel Stevens was forced to choose between Paddy Kennedy and Sarah after Kieran McKillop topped the public vote. After a lot of deliberating Stevens opted to send Clare’s only remaining contest through to the semi-finals.

Only eight contestants remain in the competition with next weekend’s show (April 19th) being the semi-finals. The bookies favourite at the moment is Patrick Donoghue of Team Una at 15/8. According to Paddy Power, McTernan is joint fourth in the race to be crowned champion at 6/1.

While the bookies odds don’t read so favourably for the Clare contestant, it is solely self-belief that stands in the way of Sarah McTernan and her progression in the competition.

Check out Sarah’s quarter-final performance.
