Maiú hails from Greystones, a coastal village in County Wicklow, known as the ‘Garden of Ireland’. It is located on the east coast of Ireland, flanked by beautiful beaches and the magnificent Wicklow Mountains.
The talented young singer also enjoys youth theatre, basketball and playing the piano (which he took up as a hobby at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic).
During the grand final of Junior Eurovision Éire, Maiú had to perform two cover songs in front of a distinguished panel of judges: Eurovision winner Linda Martin, radio presenter Niamh Ní Chróinín, and Fiachna Ó Braonáin of the band Hothouse Flowers.
No stranger to the pressure of singing live, Maiú has performed at the London Palladium for the Britain's Got Talent judges and appeared on RTE’s Late Late Toy Show at the age of 10.
