Lisbon 2018

We catch up with Ireland’s Ryan O’Shaughnessy at the London Eurovision Party

Ireland’s Eurovision representative, Ryan O’Shaughnessy spoke to us regarding his previous music endeavors and his plans for the contest at the London Eurovision Party.

Ryan will perform his entry “Together” at the first semi-final on the 8th of May in Lisbon.


In our interview with Ryan, he has mentioned that he demoed “Together”. He entered it when RTE was asking around for potential entries for Lisbon.  When we asked Ryan as to what made him participate, he mentioned: “Why not, it will be a good experience”.
We also ask Ryan what he has been up to ever since he participated in Britain’s Got Talent with “No Name” and how he has been writing music for other people and touring the USA before doing Eurovision.
We also asked Ryan about having a creative input towards the music video for “Together” and how the idea for the music video came about.

“Together” was penned by Ryan O’Shaughnessy, Mark Caplice, and Laura Elizabeth Hughes. The Music Video was directed by Christian Tierney, choreographed by Ciaran Connolly and performed by Alan McGrath and Kevin O’Dwyer.

What do you think of Ryan’s “Together”? Do you think that he will be able to pull off an Irish comeback at Eurovision?
