It’s been seven years since the last one. But after six mostly-underwhelming internal selections, Ireland is returning to it’s old Eurosong national final. As was the case in 2006 and 2007 and from 2009 to 2015, the Irish final will take place on the The Late Late Show. Don’t be surprised if there’s a lot of chatting — the programme is famed for being the world’s second-longest running talk show.
Here’s when and how you can watch Eurosong 2022.

The Late Late Show Final — 4 February 2022
Time: 22:35 CET to 00:50 CET
The show will be live-streamed on the RTÉ Player.
Tonight’s winner will be determined by a mixture of public and jury voting. However, the split will not be 50/50. Instead it will be divided three ways. The televote, a national jury and an international jury will each account for one third of the result.
The running order is:
- Patrick O’Sullivan “One Night, One Kiss, One Promise”
- Janet Grogan “Ashes of Yesterday”
- Brendan Murray “Real Love”
- Miles Graham “Yeah, We’re Gonna Get Out of It”
- Rachel Goode “I’m Loving Me”
- Brooke Scullion “That’s Rich”
