Aidan O’Mahony has opened up about life after Dancing with the Stars, ahead of tonight’s highly anticipated final.
The GAA star will be competing against Aobhin Garrihy and Denise McCormack for the coveted glitter ball on tonight’s show.
The new dad has admitted he’s thoroughly enjoyed his time on the dance show, but he’s looking forward to returning to normality after the show ends.
“I’m just a normal country lad so I’m looking forward to getting back to reality when this is all over.” he told the Irish Sun
“I’ll be back on the beat on Tuesday, back to studying for my degree (in Strength and Conditioning) and I’ll be back to being a dad. I’ll be back to being me, I won’t be a celebrity.
“Dancing with the Stars has been fantastic and I won’t forget it. But normality is nice too.”
Speaking about Dayl Cronin’s shock elimination last week, Aidan revealed it was hard to see his friend leave so close to the final.
“I’ve been living in Dublin with Dayl for four months so to see him so emotional after learning he was leaving the competition was awful. I felt emotional myself, I felt I had crushed a young lad’s dream. I’ve played in finals and I know what it’s like to win and to lose.
“I think people see that I’m a guy who came in with no skills and is improving every week.
“Dayl — and I genuinely mean this — was to me the winner already. He’ll go on and be a big star in the UK or here with his music and I told him not to forget about me when that happens. He has a big future.”
