Michael Kealy, Head of Delegation for Ireland, said:
‘I am really impressed by the quality and standard of the six acts we have in our Eurosong final this year. The Eurovision Song Contest is a global phenomenon, and the competition is getting harder every year, but whichever of our six finalists gets to represent Ireland in Liverpool in May I’ve no doubt they will represent us brilliantly, winning new fans all over the world.’
The national selection will take place on February 3rd as a special edition of the Late Late Show. This time, the winner will be chosen through a combination of national jury, international jury and public voting.
