Irish Eurovision Failure May Be Ended

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Now after years of misfires, misfits and a mischievous turkey, Ireland has spoken and placed their 2010 Eurovision hopes and dreams in the hands of a real talent who has already tasted that sweet success that is Eurovision glory, Niamh Kavanagh.

Niamh successfully topped Friday night’s public vote and regional judging on the Late Late Show to earn her place in Oslo for what surely promises to be Ireland’s most realistic hope for Euro glory in over a decade.

The winning song ‘It’s For You’ fought off some stiff competition, but in the end, scoring maximum points, this song correctly came out the clear winner.

Eurovision purists will know Niamh from her past heroics, way back in 1993, where in a unforgettable night in Millstreet, she won over the Union with her rapturous rendition of ‘In Your Eyes’, the second of Ireland’s ‘3 in a row’ Euro successes on the 1990’s.

The Dubliner, who now lives in County Antrim, surely has what it takes to drag Ireland out of the Eurovision doldrums and back to the glory days that defined the nation’s songbook in the 90’s.

Ireland holds the record for the most number of wins in the contest, having won a total of seven times, including three times in a row in 1992, 1993 and 1994.

We’re behind you all the way Niamh.
