Ireland 2015: Kasey & Cathal ready for Eurovision… again!
DUBLIN, IRELAND – The interest for the Irish national selection is huge as more than 200 submissions the national broadcaster received. Eurovision Ireland website reports today two interesting information: two former Eurovision participants for Ireland are bidding again for Vienna’s Eurovision Song Contest.
Kasey Smith and Cathal Dunne are trying to get the ticket again for Eurovision. Kasey represented Ireland in 2014 Eurovision edition with Can-Linn with the song “Heartbeat” which didn’t do much.
Cathal Dunne was 5th in the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest for Ireland but will this be an asset for him bidding for Ireland 2015 representation? Since the 80s he is living in the US where he’s successfully performing traditional music.
With Jedward out of the picture it will be interesting to see what will happen in Ireland as the country seems to start seeking its 8th victory in the contest.
In the meantime Irish national broadcaster gears up the final selection line up. Two juries will finalize the list of national finalists line up. A preliminary jury will narrow finalists from 200 to 40 or 50 and then a second jury will decide the six acts for the final.
