The Dublin teenagers who performed an impromptu duet at Connolly Station last week were reunited on The Ray D'Arcy Show on RTÉ last night.
Irish Rail shared a video of Darragh Smith and Stephanie Starpong performing Say Something by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera on the piano at the Dublin station. The rendition proved popular with both passing train passengers and online audiences and the most surprising thing is that the pair didn't even know each other before their performance.
Darragh was playing alone before Stephanie appeared behind him and joined in but it wasn't long before she left leaving Darragh flying solo once more. Stephanie explained to Ray that the reason she decided to accompany Darragh in the first place was because she was feeling "hyper"...
"When I heard someone playing the piano I just kind of gravitated towards it"

Darragh explained that he complimented Stephanie's "gorgeous voice" before "she just ran off on me" but fans will be glad to know that they've found each other again. The pair took to the piano on the RTÉ set, presumably with slightly more planning than the first time around, and mesmerised a national TV audience in the same way they did rail commuters previously. You can take a look at the stunning four-and-a-half-minute clip below...
The next time you're passing through Connolly Station, it just might be worth stopping to listen for a couple of minutes.
