Aoibhin Garrihy paid tribute to the Irish Coast Guard on Dancing with the Stars
Aoibhin Garrihy paid tribute to the Irish Coast Guard after her performance on Dancing with the Stars last night.
The finalist got teary eyed after dancing to Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 U.
Her emotional and fitting words came after four emergency workers went missing off the coast of Mayo last week.
“Such an emotional song, I got emotional looking at the graphics of our coastline and thinking of the Irish Coast Guard in everyone’s thoughts this week,” she said to host Amanda Byram.
Taking to social media, viewers thanked Aoibhin for remembering our heroes before complimenting her moves on the dance floor.
Thank you for remembering our coast guard in your special hour – very classy act
Aoibhin is absolutely incredible. She’s no longer an amateur, she’s a true professional now. Six 10’s in one show is amazing! #DWTSIrl
If I were Aoibhin Garrihy, I would never walk anywhere again, just charleston my way down the street like a BOSS! #DWTSIrl
#DWTSIrl Just made me cry with nothing compares. Phenomenal performance. Aoibhin to win 🙂
