For the last 2 years Ireland have been successfully represented by Jedward at Eurovision and brought the country back to the Top 10 at the contest in 2011. What they have also done is to bring a youthful following to Eurosong and Eurovision back in Ireland and this is reflected in the 5 candidates that we have in the Irish Final aka Eurosong 2013.
The 5 songs will be premiered today on the Mooney Radio Show on RTE Radio 1 at 3pm (GMT).
