Katie Heffernan from Lattin is one of eight contestants in the new RTE TV programme called Music Inc that is being broadcast on Monday nights.
“I saw Music Inc advertised on TwoTube on RTÉ 2. It was encouraging young people of my age, currently in Transition Year to apply and this caught my eye immediately as I was interested in getting to know more about the music industry. I think music inspires people worldwide and it’s inspirational.,” said Katie.
All the contestants are competing to win a work placement with X-Factor judge Louis Walsh. Each week the contestants receive challenges with one of them going home depending on their performance.
Katie appeared on OMG Jedward’s Dream Factory in 2011 . Her proud parents are John Quirke from Mount Bruis and Carmel Quirke from Silvermines
