Ireland has always had a strong connection with the Eurovision, taking the trophy home a total of seven times. However, it seems as if our luck has run out as we haven't scooped the award since 1996, when Eimear Quinn won with 'The Voice.' But could there be a change in store?
This year it will be former Hometown band member Brendan Murray that will take to the stage in the Ukraine, this May.
Murray will perform Dying to Try, a song co-written by Swedish song writer Jörgen Elofsson and British song writer James Newman.
According to RTÉ The song was chosen from over 320 entries by a judging panel of six industry professionals.
