Looking back to Tel Aviv
In March 2019, RTÉ announced that they had internally selected McTernan to follow in the footsteps of Ryan O’Shaughnessy who had achieved a fantastic mid-table finish in the grand final in Lisbon the previous year. Her retro-pop song “22” was accompanied by a memorable and eye-catching American diner-styled performance in Tel Aviv.
Asked by ilovelimerick.ie about her Eurovision experience, Sarah looked back extremely fondly on the competition:
It was amazing. I always had that as a goal and how bloody lucky am I to have that goal crossed off my list. I feel blessed for the people that I got to work with and the friends I made on that incredible journey. Genuinely made life friends from across the globe. It was the craziest moment when I was standing on that stage and the stage manager counted down from 5. I could hear my heartbeat, breathe, I don’t even know what I was thinking something took over me. It was exhilarating.Sarah McTernan (December 2020)
