Tipperary’s Molly Sterling will represent Ireland at the 60th Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, Austria this year, 2015.
The final vote lay in the hands of the general public and it was down to a two-horse race last night as 16 year old Tipperary Musician and Songstress Molly Sterling edged out runner-up performer Kat Mahon latter singing ‘Anybody Got a Shoulder,’ by four points (Total of 104 points), on RTE 1’s ‘The Late Late Show.’
Molly’s song “Playing With Numbers” was co-written with Greg French and rendered live last night on TV with the passion and feeling of a professional performer twice her age.
Entertainer Panti Bliss, one of the four commenting RTE panel members which also included Phil Coulter, Linda Martin and Mairead Farrell, insisted “This is the song for me,” even before the voting had commenced.
Molly – Tipperary loves you – “Go Girl”.
