About The Competition

About the Competition

Your Local Star Competition is one of Ireland’s leading talent shows. The Competition was set up to raise awareness and showcase the immense talent that is on offer here in our local areas, communities and counties.


Brian Cunningham Executive Producer and one of Ireland’s leading agents to the stars has years of experience in the music industry and he felt that it was now important to go into the hearts of the communities in various counties in Ireland and give those talented people the opportunity to showcase their talent either big or small and bring them to national acclaim.


With some great prizes on offer and a helping hand on how to market the winning act, there is a great sense of anticipation as to see who will be our county winners.


We are delighted to be joined by our judging panel once again this year of X Factor Star Mary Byrne who is the Chairperson of the judging panel. Mary has first hand experience of competitions like Your Local Star Competition and she herself rose to fame further to her appearance on the X Factor. Mary is looking forward to seeing the incredible new talent that our country has to offer.


Mary will be joined by Voice of Ireland Star Kayleigh Cullinan on the judging panel. Kayleigh has vast experience in singing competitions and realizes the nerves that each of the acts will experience. Kayleigh has currently recorded her brand new album and since appearing on the Voice of Ireland has been inundated with requests to appear north and south at various functions and events.


This year the shows will be hosted by Brian Cunningham.


The Judges Votes will account for Sixty (60) Points and members of the audience upon entry will receive a vote coming into the venue. The Audience Vote will account for Forty (40) Points. There will be an opportunity for the audience to purchase votes.


We are delighted to have an Independent adjudicator who will oversee everything is done correctly and efficiently.


We look forward to welcoming you to Your Local Star Competition and hopefully showcasing your talent nationwide.
