music. Wide Eyed Lady is track no. 3 on Lou's EP Delicate Dancer, released in 2009/10. Lou worked on

a musical task for the show. Thousands of artists entered the competition and Lou was one of the lucky
ones to win through and have her song 'A River' featured on the Fighting Chance CD ‐ as Track No. 1 no
less! The CD was distributed throughout Ireland with the Irish Daily Mail newspaper.

‘Delicate Dancer, the new EP from the Sixmilebridge singer songwriter, is a lovely taster of the undoubted
talent that McMahon possesses. From the early moments of opening track ‘A River’, the listener is left
with no illusion – this is no ordinary, middle‐of‐the‐road singer songwriter.’ Andy Hamilton ‐ The Clare
