An Irish boy-band breezed their way to the finals of Germany’s Got Talent for singing as Gaeilge

Dúlamán are up against 13 other acts.

DÚLAMÁN WILL TAKE to the stage this Saturday to perform on the final of ‘Das Supertalent’ – the German equivalent of Britain’s Got Talent.

Sean Keany, Conor McQuaid, Gavin Ryan and Aaron Doyle sing as part of stage show Dúlamán: Voice Of Celts, which tours Germany early next year.

The lads entered in an effort to drum up some publicity for the tour, but ended up impressing judge Dieter Bohlen so much, he signed the band to do an album in German with Sony Music.


Conor told DailyEdge:

An ad was put up about an Irish group going to Germany for a tour. I applied and got the job. They had the idea of entering us in Das Supertalent to promote the tour and then the whole thing just blew up!
We made it to the final and were signed by Sony Music Germany.”

Conor knew two of the lads before the process, all hailing from Dunboyne, while Aaron is repping Monasterevin, Co. Kildare.

In their audition, the lads took a German classic - Brother Louie – and sang it as Gaeilge.

Reaction has been good because we’ve been singing old German pop songs as Gaeilge. Like a fusion.”

The troupe – made up of the four lads and 10 dancers – are up against 13 other acts in the final on Saturday – Conor reckons it’s anyone’s game at this point.

There’s every chance but it’s down to the German people. The prize is €100,000 and I assume there’ll be other gigs and duties for the winner.”
It’s been mad in Ireland over the last week media wise and everyone seems to be behind us, so that’s great!”

The lad’s album, Voice Of Celts, is released on December 15th.
