Dermot Kennedy sends sweet good luck message to aunt Mary Kennedy on DWTS

Were you today-years-old when you realised that superstar Dermot Kennedy is Mary Kennedy's nephew?

RTÉ broadcaster Mary Kennedy is currently competing on Dancing With The Stars Ireland. Dancing a Viennese Waltz on last night's episode, the Nationwide presenter gave a mention to her nephew whose song she chose to dance to.

The song being What Have I Done and her nephew being the one and only Dermot Kennedy.

Ahead of her performance last night, Mary called it a "special" one as she gets to dance to music written by the Outnumbered star.

And unfortunately, Dermot couldn't make it to be there with his aunt but he did send a little message which was played out before the performance.

“Hey guys it’s Dermot here. I’m on tour at the moment in Atlanta but I just wanted to send a little message to say best of luck to Mary and John this weekend.”
