Ireland chose their artist and song internally, like in the past three years. Among the rumoured names are ELM and Lesley Roy. The creative director Phillip McMahon says that the song is new direction for Ireland.
What I kind of thought when hearing the song is that in 10 years’ time we will still be dancing to this song. I think we’re up there [with Loreen’s Euphoria]! I think this is a new direction for Ireland. We haven’t heard this style of song and the act is just bloody cool.Phillip McMahon on Ireland’s entry
