Irish Politician hopes for Eurovision hit

Local Irish Politician Trevor Gilligan, hopes to regenerate Irelands Eurovision success with his new track  ‘Keep You Warm’.

Over the summer, Gilligan released a 3 track EP which received rave reviews as well as airplay on National TV & Radio. “One of the highest honours in music is representing Ireland in the Eurovision. To be involved in writing & composing a song for my country would be a dream come true.”

Interestingly, when Gilligan was 15, he entered a song into the Eurovision contest for Ireland. It was recorded on a 4 track, but the track didn’t fly. “At the time, I had no experience writing or producing music.”

Gilligan hopes his entry ‘Keep You Warm’ will match the criteria judges require for the song contest: Gentle Piano, Heavy Bass & Catchy lyrics, but most of all a simple melody.

The 63rd Eurovision Song Contest takes place May 8th – May 12th, 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal.
