End of the road for ‘Voice’ contestant Pauric

Pauric McLoughlin from Navan whose journey on the 'Voice of Ireland' has ended.

There was mixed fortunes for Meath’s two local artists on the ‘Voice of Ireland’ on Sunday night with Sarah Sylvia Furlong making it through to the next stage of the competition while Pauric McLoughlin’s journey on the show has ended.
Sunday night was the first live show and for the first time viewers had the chance to vote for their favourite acts. Judges also gave their scores out of 10 for each act, apart from their own team members, and this also formed part of the vote.
The top act from each team went through while the mentor then had to choose which act would go forward in the competition.
Sarah Sylvia, from Oristown, Kells, is part of Team Bressie and performed ‘Clarity’ by Zedd on Sunday night’s show. She got a total mark of 22 from the judges. Brendan McCahey came out on top and of the two remaining acts, Bressie felt Sarah had the most potential, meaning it was the end for Kedar Friis Lawerence.
Sarah now makes it through to the next stage of the competition.
However, Sunday night’s show marked the end of the road for Navan’s Pauric McLoughlin. The 26-year-old performed ‘Revelate’ by The Frames, and judges gave him an overall score of 19.
Pauric was originally on Dolores O’Riordan’s team but in the previous week’s show Dolores picked Kellie Lewis from Limerick to go through ahead of Pauric. However, Pauric was stolen by Kian Egan at the last second to make it through to the live shows on Kian’s team.
On Team Kian, Jay Boland achieved the highest score and went straight through to the next stage. Kian had to choose between Pauric McLoughlin and Laura O’Connor, with Pauric losing out.
The Beechdale Drive resident said he “absolutely loved” performing on the live shows and said it was a “fantastic experience”.
“I thoroughly enjoyed it and I have no regrets and am coming out with my head held high,” said Pauric.
Pauric is finishing up a course in music production and sound engineering this week and will be busy preparing for his exams.
“I realise now I want to do music in some capacity,” said Pauric, adding that he intends to keep playing and hopes to get work as a sound engineer. He has also had some offers to join bands.
