#HERE TODAY,GONE TOMORROW ….Where are the our Past Irish acts now?

Those of you who look in regularly to our site will be aware that in the past two years, during Eurovision Close season , Eurovision Ireland have been taking a look back at our stars from times gone by and seeing what they are up to these days. This year, mindful that it is the 10th anniversary of Eurovision Ireland, we have decided to focus this year on Irish acts only . Today, we start off with Molly Sterling .

Who is Molly Sterling?

Cast your minds back to 2015 and Molly Sterling won Ireland’s Eurosong 2015 contest , organised by Ireland’s broadcaster,RTE and went on to represent Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, Austria . She first become known to the music world in 2011 when she won the Teen Idol contest , winning a Popstars Studio recording prize. At the 2012 Kilkenny music festival, she won second place for Girls Vocal Solo .She finished 2nd in TV3’s “All Ireland Schools in Talent Search ” in May 2014 and released her first EP “Strands of Heart ” in November 2014.

Molly described her musical influences as being Stevie Nicks, Lana del Rey ,and Beyonce.

Molly at Eurovision

Molly was internally selected to represent Ireland at the contest in Vienna in 2015 with her song, “Playing with Numbers”( written by herself and Greg French) at the age of just 17 years old. She was drawn to compete in the second semi Final but unfortunately did not make it through to the Grand Final, finishing 12th in the semi final with 35 points .

After Eurovision

Following the disappointing result in Vienna, Molly went on to release more singles ; “Fake the Cost ” in 2015 “Plain static ” in 2017,”Stripped Down ” in 2018 and “Feeble ” in 2019. Will Molly continue to go forward with her music career? Will she try Eurovision again, to try and make up for the disappointment of 2015?
