On Friday night, Tipperary native Molly Sterling was chosen to represent Ireland at the 60th Eurovision Song Contest this May.
Her song, ‘Playing with Numbers’, which Molly co-wrote with Greg French won through a combination of public and jury votes.
Molly said of her win: ‘It’s an unbelievably feeling! I can’t believe that it happened, it’s amazing. I just want to make everyone proud and Greg has worked so hard on this. I just love performing and I can now do it in an international scale – it’s mind-blowing. I don’t think my school will mind that I haven’t handed in my assignment. They’re all so supportive and they know this is what I’ve wanted to do since I was in nappies!’
This year’s Eurovision will be held in Vienna on the 23rd ofMay, with Ireland competing in the second semi-final.
