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! So we're delighted to announce that The X Factor is returning to Ireland!
From Thursday 6th to Sunday 9th April, open auditions will be held in St. Stephen's Green Shopping Centre, Dublin, from 9AM to 6PM (Sunday 11AM to 6PM) and we are expecting the level of talent to be better than ever! Could 2017 be the year we find our first ever Irish winner?
