Alexander Holland-Walsh has won the Carlow Busking Competition after the competition was whittled down to just three finalists after a public vote. 

The competition - which saw the finalists' videos being viewed almost 80,000 times - has been hailed as a huge success. 

Alexander - whose video for the competition was of him performing the hit song 'Ain't No Sunshine' - has won €500 worth of Love Carlow vouchers and also received a plaque at the Council Chamber on Monday night to recognise his achievement. 

Well done also to the other finalists: singing duo Abbie Kelly and Ellie O'Brien and musician Josh Doyle.

Alexander's mother took to Facebook on Monday to thank everyone for their support.
