TG4’s brand new show searching for Ireland’s most entertaining family

From The Clancy Brothers to Crystal Swing, the Irish family has entertained us throughout the decades. Talented Irish families have excelled in their particular genres, whether it’s the pop music of The Corrs or the sean-nós dancing of the Cunninghams.

Now it’s time to find a brand new family that will entertain the nation.

Over 13 episodes, TG4’s new show FEIS & BLOOD, will set out to find a new super-star family.
All entries must be made up solely from family members and must consist of at least 2 people.

So if your family is the new Clannad, or if you like to sing and dance with your brother, sister, parents or grandparents, we want to hear from you. Maybe you enjoy singing Country & Western with your niece? Or do you spend Sunday evenings doing your own version of Riverdance with your cousins? Perhaps you enjoy playing music with your uncle? Whatever the talent, get in touch with us and apply for an audition.

How to apply:
Simply log onto and click on FEIS & BLOOD or and fill out the application form. Alternatively, you can call 01-284 3877 and ask for Críona or Siobhan.

Once you have applied, you will be contacted to attend your local audition.
From the auditions, the most entertaining families will be invited to take part in the show. If you are called to take part in the series, the next stage will be to record your first round show in Dublin.

The first round shows will be recorded on 4th, 5th, 6th, 11th, 12th, 13th January 2011. If you are selected for the show, you will only be required to come to Dublin for just ONE of those dates.

How the series works:
Several different families will perform in each of the 10 first round shows. In each of these shows, one family will be chosen to return for the quarter final. So after the first round shows, we are left with 10 quarter finalists.
In shows 11, 12 and 13 the 10 quarter finalists will be whittled down to one overall series winner.

Watching the families in each show is the judging panel, comprising of 3 experts in the field of entertainment. The judging panel are responsible for selecting the winning family in each of the 10 first round shows. They will also make the crucial decisions in shows 11, 12, and 13, and will select the overall series winner.

Has your family got the talent gene? Does entertainment flow in your blood?
