Following months of anticipation and speculation, RTÉ (the national public broadcaster of Ireland) announced that Sarah McTernan will be flying the Irish flag at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. But before she gets to Tel Aviv, she will be performing “22” at Leicester Square’s iconic Café de Paris on Sunday 14th April for the London Eurovision Party. She follows Ryan O’Shaugnessy’s performance at the event last year.
From number 22… to number 3-4 Coventry Street
After months of speculation, the Irish broadcaster RTÉ finally announced that Sarah McTernan will represent Ireland in Tel Aviv with “22” earlier this month. 25-year-old Sarah McTernan rose to fame after taking part in The Voice of Ireland in 2015. She competed in Rachel Stevens’ team and eventually finished third. Following this she released her debut single “Eye of the Storm“, written by Ylva and Linda Persson. “22” was written by an international team, consisting of Janieck, Marcia “Misha” Sondeijker and Roulsen. Sarah will compete in the first half of the second semi-final on the 16th of May.
Last year, the Irish entrant Ryan O’Shaughnessy brought his entry “Together” to the Café de Paris stage. We look forward to welcoming Sarah and the Irish team back to the London Eurovision Party once again!
