After months of campaigning via Twitter and Facebook, Coleraine teenager Niamh Murray finally got to meet her idol Olly Murs in Dublin on Sunday night.

Niamh (18) who is a pupil at Sandelford School, got tickets to Olly’s Belfast concert last week, but sadly she could only watch from afar as the talented singer songwriter treated his Belfast audience to one of his energetic shows. Instead Niamh got to meet ‘Lunar’ the band who supported Olly on stage in Belfast.

Niamh’s dreams finally came true on Sunday after thanks to a Dublin radio station. Niamh’s mum Lynda explained: “We emailed the radio station and told them about Niamh. On Sunday afternoon we got a call to see if we could be Dublin for 8pm. They gave us three front row seats and Niamh got to meet Olly. He was very good with her, she told him she loved him and he told her she was his darling, she is still on cloud nine, “joked Lynda. “We had front row tickets and Olly waved down and her a few times, it was a wonderful night.”
