Rory had the chance to sit down and speak to Brendan Murray, vying to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin. Brendan is no stranger to Eurovision, having represented Ireland at the 2017 Contest in Kyiv.
Speaking with Rory, Brendan goes into new song – “Real Love” – and how he feels more in control about his participation this time around. He also gives hints at the potential for new music in the coming months.
Brendan Murray is one of six artists hoping to represent Ireland in Turin. All six artists will be performing their entries during a special edition of ‘The Late Late Show’. The show will take place on Friday, February 4th. The winner of that show will go on to sing for Ireland in Italy in May.
Ireland’s Eurovision journey
In 1965, Ireland made their debut in the Eurovision Song Contest with Butch Moore and the song “Walking the Streets in the Rain”, which managed to place 6th. Since their debut, Ireland has participated 54 times (making the Grand Final 45 times), and has won the competition seven times, which is currently the record for most wins.
Ireland’s latest Eurovision participation saw them being represented by Lesley Roy, with the song “MAPS”. She placed 16th in the semi-final, receiving 20 points from the Jury and Televote.
