ABOUT EOGHAN MCDERMOT


Television presenter, actor and choreographer Eoghan McDermott is fast becoming one of Ireland’s rising stars.

Eoghan completed his dance training in the world renowned Broadway Dance Center where his teachers included Kevin Maher (Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Missy Elliott) and Luam (Kanye West, Kelis, Ashanti). He went on to choreograph Europe’s largest student fashion show, The UCD Fashion Show in The Point Depot, Dublin.

He has performed all over the world, supporting some of the world’s biggest music acts including Rhianna, The Pussycat Dolls and Chris Brown.

As well as being one of Europe’s up and coming celebrity choreographers, Eoghan is very quickly making a name for himself as a television presenter. As a fluent Irish speaker, he has been in huge demand with TG4 and with his young, trendy and fresh approach to presenting, his style crosses the Irish/English speaking audiences with ease. His presenting credits to-date include, Immeal Geall (BBC), CULA 4 (TG4), POP4 (TG4) for whom he recently covered the World Music Awards in Monaco.

His dynamic and fresh approach to presenting didn’t go unnoticed by MTV who named him one of the top two presenting talents of 2008.

Eoghan has also established himself in the acting world having played the lead role of ‘DJ Pete’ in all four series of the popular TG4/BBC NI teen drama, ‘Seacht’.

Having just completed filming with Adare Productions for ‘Frenemies’ (RTE), Eoghan has now moved to London where he has been contracted to DJ with radio station XFM who in the past, have been the launch pad for such personalities as Ricky Gervais, Russell Brand and Dermot O’Leary amongst others.
