Junior Eurovision – With only weeks left to go, one of the few countries left to select its representative for Junior Eurovision 2015 is Ireland. Former 1993 Eurovision winner, Niamh Kavanagh, has spoken about her involvement in the selection process. Ireland has joined Junior Eurovision for the first time and is taking it seriously. One of the exciting things about this is that people will get to hear a song in the Irish language for a change.
Five televised shows will be broadcast on Irish TV station, TG4…4 Semi Finals and a Grand Final. The shows start on 11th October and will run each week with the final on November 8th.
Our good friends at Eurovision Ireland will be updating Eurovision fans over the coming weeks and say there will be plenty of surprises. They’ve also conducted an interview with Niamh about her involvement. Niamh talks about how taking part in Junior Eurovision could set Ireland up for success in the main competition in future…and how rubbish her Irish is!
