This morning Ryan and the team had a local rehearsal at a space around the corner from his hotel. Their guide Linn Brekell kindly let Team Ireland use her work space for rehearsal. It was nice and bright and airy with mirrors and great acoustics. Everyone was in good shape, enthusiastic and energetic. The staff at Linn’s PR company do work for Tourism Ireland and they were very excited to meet Ryan and get a sneak peak at the performance.

At 12 noon we met the delegation from Montenegro. They consist of rappers Who See – Dedduh and Noyz and their backing singer Nina. The trio met Ryan and backing singers Leanne and Alison.

Ryan said: It was really nice to meet the team from Montenegro. We talked about what it felt like to walk out on the Eurovision Stage for the first time. Who See have won MTV EMA Awards so they’re a really big deal at home. They have cool astronaut costumes on stage.”

It was Ryan’s mentor Stuart’s birthday yesterday. The team went out for dinner and arranged a cake for Stuart and sang Happy Birthday much to the amusement of other diners in the restaurant. Eurovision Ireland will have a belated present in store for Stuart too!

Today Ryan and the Irish Delegation are going to meet the local GAA team for a display of their football skills. Ryan has invited the Austrian delegation to come along as their act Natalia Kelly has Irish connections.

Ryan put in another great rehearsal performance today – all lights are green.
