Ireland has failed to land a place in the Eurovision Grand Final this weekend.

Despite Galway man Brendan Murray giving an excellent performance in last night's Semi-Final, Ireland missed out on a position in the top 10.

Ireland has not been in the Eurovision Grand Final since 2013.  

'I'm disappointed, but life is full of knocks so I'm going to take it on the chin and move on,' said Brendan, according to RTÉ.

'Tomorrow's another day.'

Romania, Denmark, Austria, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Belarus, Croatia, Hungary, Israel and Norway and are all through to this weekend's final in Kyiv. 



Don't feel like bracing the outdoors tonight? Not to worry, The Late Late Show's line up is worth staying in for.

Actor, and Sherlock star, Andrew Scott and director John Butler will join Tubs to discuss their new film, Handsome Devil.

Funny gal, Katherine Lynch, will be speaking about her life after Celebrity Operation Transformation and Dancing with the Stars. She will also pay tribute to grand-uncle, poet Patrick Kavanagh.

Journalists Owen Conlon and Stephen Breen will discussing the ins and outs of Christy Kinahan and the Dublin gang feud.

Viewers will be brought back in time with a look at some restored classic Irish advertisements from the Irish Film Institute.  

And Brandan Murray, Ireland’s hopeful for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev, will take to The Late Late show stage to perform his song Dying to Try.

Catch The Late Late Show on RTÉ One at 9.35pm tonight.



Well, the song representing Ireland in the Eurovision this year has been chosen.

RTÉ revealed the news this weekend, debuting the video for the first time on-air.

Former Hometown member Brendan Murray will perform a song called Dying To Try at the Eurovision Song Contest in the Ukraine this May.

The song was chosen out of over 320 applications by a judging panel of "six industry professionals," according to the news station.

"My mam teared up the first time she heard it so that was a good start," Brendan said.

Good luck, lads!


Ah, Louis, you never fail to bemuse us.

Mr Walsh has revealed that he's sending Hometown member Brendan Murray over to the Eurovision in 2017.

The music manager revealed on the Late Late Show last night that he's taken control of the Eurovision for Ireland for next year and wants Brendan to represent us.

The X Factor judge said: "Brendan is prefect for Eurovision. He has a distinctive voice and a look that I think will really appeal to audiences across Europe."

However, now that Louis has the performer, he still needs a song.

"I want to find the best song for Brendan to perform on that Eurovision stage. I'm going to use my own contacts in the business and I want to hear songs from Irish songwriters or songwriters abroad until I find the best song.

"I won't rest until I do," he added.
