While the UK Apprentice may be in full swing, the second series of TV3’s Irish Apprentice has just started looking for this year’s hopefuls. At yesterday’s launch in The Dylan Hotel, Bill Cullen called for ‘warriors with liathroidi’.
The second series takes place in a different world, an Ireland where the Celtic Tiger has gone and left us with an economy in serious difficulties.
Last year’s Apprentice was exciting and fresh and without a doubt the best show TV3 has aired. Brenda Shanahan ultimately beat Nicky O’Callaghan to become Bill’s first Apprentice. Bill wanted someone who would ‘hit the ground running’.
Returning to our screens in the Autumn, Bill will sit at the head of the boardroom again with Jackie Lavin and Brian Purcell in his ears. 14 new candidates will fight and bitch and moan their way into the coveted role of Apprentice to Bill Cullen and a package worth €100,000.
If you are or if you know someone who could go all the way, check out tv3.ie/theapprentice. This year the window for applications is very short, so potentials must register before May 8th. I think we should put in an application for our own Darragh Doyle. What do you think?
