WATCH: We have a winner in the Le Crunch Apple of My Eye Song Contest

It's been emotional.


The journey has finally ended but it's been a serious trip. We asked you to send in your best covers for the Le Crunch Apple of My Eye Song Contest and we weren't disappointed with the response. People from all over the country sent in their songs or turned up at the live audition and we were blown away by the standard of this year's competitors.

After much deliberation, the public vote and the judges narrowed it down to just five finalists: Katie Cassidy, Slow Seas, Crossing Paths, Scoops and Mimi Lane & Stephen Kelly. But if we've learned anything from the cheesy 80s action flick, Highlander, it's that you can't have five winners.

The five took to the stage of Whelan's to duke it out in a musical battle and see who could win over a panel of judges that included Maximum Media Broadcast Director Paddy McKenna, Ham SandwicH singer Niamh Farrell and Peter Dunne, owner of BARE in the Woods.


With €1500 on the line for the winner, it was a pressurised situation for the musical acts but they pulled out the stops to provide a great night's entertainment for the packed audience. The audience was also treated to live performances from former Le Crunch Apple of My Eye Song Contest winners Brave Giant and Flat Out on the night.

When the dust settled, Katie Cassidy was announced as the deserving winner of the Le Crunch Apple of My Eye Song Contest for her amazing cover of 'Feeling Good.' And so it's over but we're sure you'll be hearing more from Katie and the other talented finalists.

Thanks again for everyone who got involved and submitted songs. And in case you missed out on the final in Whelan's, here's a little video that captures the finale to what's been a fantastic competition.
