We think Lyra is The Big Deal in Irish music!

So, it's appropriate that she is appearing as a Judge on the show 'The Big Deal' on Virgin Media Television.

It’s the channel’s BIG Saturday night show. It involves contestants accepting a cash deal or taking a chance to go further in the competition. “Are you going to take the deal or are you going to take a chance?!”

Her fellow judges are Jedward, Boy George, Deirdre O’Kane and Aston Merrygold.

Lyra was in fab form as she chatted to Fergal D'Arcy who was live from the Autumn Air festival in Mitchelstown, Cork:

Making waves across the water Lyra performed at the Reading & Leeds Festival recently. Her performance was described as show-stopping.

In July she also appeared at Latitude Festival and supported Kodaline in Belfast. Last weekend she played the Neighbourhood Weekender in Warrington England.

This weekend LYRA opens the Main Stage at TRNSMT (pronounced Transmit) Festival on Sunday in The UK – Next Sunday she plays The Isle Of Wight Festival. She is delighted to be back in front of a human crowd!

LYRA has also co-written the lead track along with Grammy award winning Bill Whelan on the new Riverdance animation movie – the single called “Light Me Up” will be released to coincide with the worldwide date of the movie in March 2022.
