In 1994 it was a dream come true for  three Boyzone fans on 'Echo Island' when they got to spend the day with Boyzone.

Emer Duane caught up with Lin Martin, Elaine McGrath and Siobhan Geraghty to find out how they got on. 

Keith Duffy talks about how the band formed and how they cope with all the female attention. The prize winners travel through Dublin city centre in an open top bus with Boyzone as they all sing 'Love me for a reason', the band's first number one single. 

This report for 'Echo Island' was broadcast on 25 November 1994.

'Echo Island' was a young people's programme on Network 2 that was broadcast as part of The Den. Presenters included Dara Ó Briain, Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh, and Carrie Crowley, amongst others.
