Ireland: Five Entries Presented to the Public

In a press release published yesterday by RTÉ, the broadcaster responsible for the participation of Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest, the five acts competing to represent the nation were made knowledgable to the public but nevertheless, the entries were presented earlier this afternoon on The Mooney Show which airs on RTÉ Radio 1. The most intriguing element to the tracks is that only one stands out from the rest and the reason being that it is a ballad, rather than a pop/dance track, an element which is found in three of the five entries presented.

For the past two years, Ireland have been represented at the Eurovision Song Contest by the group Jedward managed by Louis Walsh and it seems that the manager might have a slight involvement this year considering that Kasey was part of the girlband Wonderland which was managed by Louis Walsh and Kim Egan of Westlife. Nevertheless, the focus of the selection seems to be varied and whilst the people might be in general consensus that Ireland will do well, they might not have the track to achieve victory. You can listen to the songs just below.

Son Kez / The Last Time - Inchequin (Hugh O'Neill / Sinead Bradley)

Crashing Down - Aimée Fitzpatrick (Robert Grace)

Fire - Zoe Alexis Bohorquez (Niall Mooney / Lauren White / Willie Weeks)

One Love Survives - Ryan Dolan (Wez Devina / Ryan Dolan)

Kiss Me There - Kasey (Drax)

The Late Late Show Eurosong 2013 will be taking place on the 22nd February 2013 at 21:00 CET and considering the way that things have been organised in the past two years, it will most likely be a showcase of discussion and music with a panel of critics speaking their mind on the entries in front of the contestants whilst a regional jury and a public tele-vote will decide on the winner. will continue bringing you the latest news and will be covering the selection process live, so we hope that you stay tuned.
