BIRTHDAY: Molly Sterling from Ireland is 21 today
We like today’s birthday girl, and not just because she’s Irish. Some of us went on a boat trip with her, and chewed the fat for hours. It was a defining moment in 2015.
It’s apt that the day Ireland announces who’ll be carrying its flag in Tel Aviv, that the lovely Molly Sterling has her birthday. At the time, she was Ireland’s youngest ever participant and was very hard done to in Vienna. Her song had a very profound lyric was very clever. The trouble was that she was second on in her semi-final – never a promising start. She got a high score from the UK of stuff, which was most important. But whatever happened, she’ll always be a star.
