Ireland can end the 22 year wait for a Eurovision victory tonight.

Ryan O'Shaughnessy will perform his song Together at the final in Lisbon after performing on Tuesday night's first semi final.

The 24-year-old is currently third favourite to win.

The Irish entry has attracted global attention due to it's LGBT content.

However, O'Shaughnessy's song isn't winning everyone over, with new research from betting company Lottoland, reveals that most Irish people aren't bothered with the contest.

Only 37% of Irish adults plan on staying in tonight to watch the final, whilst 50% claim they don't care if we win or not.

A further 36% claimed they will watch ANYTHING other than the Eurovision tonight.
