A Wexford grandmother and her fourteen grandchildren appeared on Friday night’s historic Late Late Toy Show…
The Wexford grandmother, Maureen Codd, and her 14 grandchildren won the hearts of a nation last night following their family traditional Irish musical performance.
The band, which is called Cuckoo’s Nest, has played all over Ireland and last night, they played to the millions tuning in to RTE last night.
Speaking to host Ryan Tubridy, Maureen explained how the nickname Cuckoo came from. Cuckoo taught all her grandchildren how to play musical instruments.
“I’m called Cuckoo because of Eve. When she was a a baby in her cot, I used to go over to her in her cot and say Cuc-Koo. And she just assumed that was my name. And then Rachel followed on, and then they all followed on,” she said.
Directly after the performance, Ryan Tubridy joked that shouts came from people in the audience, shouting ‘Gwan Cuckoo’.
After the performance, some people online were blown away with amazement, while others called for Cuckoos Nest to enter the Eurovision on Ireland’s behalf.
