Emma O'Driscoll and Michael Carruth are among the six contestants on RTÉ's charity TV show 'Celebrity Jigs 'n' Reels'. In 1992, Michael Carruth sent Ireland into a frenzy when he won gold medal for boxing at the Barcelona Olympics. It was Ireland's first Olympic gold medallist in 36 years. Singing, presenting and jigging, there's no stopping Emma O'Driscoll. Presenting Den Tots with Soky by day, she's teamed up with Irish dancer Mick Donegan for her high kicking jibs and reels on Sunday evenings.
Richie Kavanagh's claim to fame is that his suggestive anthem 'Aon Focal Eile' has out sold Oasis, the Cranberries and Boyzone. Apparently, Richie has had 10 top 30 hits since the novelty song was released 10 years ago. And now he's back with a new album out in July and the single 'Chicken Talk'.
Larry Gogan is synonymous with his Just a Minute Quiz and the Golden Hour. His outstanding contribution to Irish music was justly marked with an Irish Recorded Music Association Honours Award. He has been on the airwaves for over 40 years and is still as popular as ever.
