• Travel enthusiasts & holidaymakers to descend on Limerick this weekend for the Holiday Show

Broadcaster and businesswoman Emma O’Driscoll today celebrated the 15th anniversary of the release of the single that launched her successful career by promising her and her husband a holiday in the sun.
The member of the former pop stars group Six, which on Valentine’s Day 2002 released what was Ireland’s fastest ever selling single ‘Whole Lot of Lovin’, was on hand to launch this weekend’s the Holiday Show, in association with Shannon Airport, at the UL Arena - the biggest event of its kind in the country outside the capital.
 “I just realised on the way here how significant today is; 15 years ago today Six released ‘Whole lot of Lovin’ and it changed my life.
“I have found myself doing things in life that would probably never have happened were it not for Six so I owe a lot to it.
“I got to places in that short-time with Six and there are one or two that I promised myself I would definitely go back to.  Weather like this certainly gets you thinking about the sun and booking a holiday.”
