There’s no doubt about it, Ireland has produced some unforgettable acts throughout XFactor's history! From Eoghan Quigg melting the hearts of a nation in 2008, to Jedward's unique take on pop in 2009, not forgetting Mary Byrne's transformation from Tesco till worker to showstopping diva and, of course, the discovery of Mullingar schoolboy turned global superstar; Niall Horan!
