Happy St Patrick’s Day to everyone! To get you in the mood for the festivities and to kick the craic off in style we have decided to countdown our favourite ten Eurovision songs from the Emerald Isle over their 50+ years in the Contest.
God knows we all love something new and innovative at Eurovision. You only have to look back on the last ten years and you can see the great variety from the bearded lady Conchita Wurst, to the elderly Russian Grannies in 2012, scary mask wearing rockers Lordi and Ireland’s Dustin the Turkey puppet. For some of these acts the risk has paid off and saw them walking away with the Eurovision crown, others however failed to qualify.
