Entertainers Muriel O' Connor and Fran Curry continue to shine with their most recent award from the Hot Country TV Show recognising them as Irelands hottest duo.
This comes in the wake of awards from The Farmers Journal and The Sunday World two years running as well as awards from numerous local radio stations. They both have recently hosted their own TV shows with guest Brendan Grace.
Singer, entertainer and broadcaster Muriel O Connor is recognised, by her peers and audiences alike, as one of the great Irish entertainers.
Muriel has recorded four albums and has enjoyed airplay hits with songs such as Hillbilly Rock, Whatever You Say Say Nothing and Waltzing an Angel. However it was the duet ‘Something Blue’ that took the radio world by storm with the song being one of the most played Irish Songs throughout 2015. Since then the hit songs continue with duets such as Water Into Wine and Ten Floors Up.
