20-year-old singer-songwriter Jennifer Connolly, from Connemara, wrote her ballad “Midnight Summer Night” at the height of the pandemic. She told RTÉ earlier:
“The song conveys confusion and overwhelming detachment, but overall. the song implies that nothing bad lasts forever, delivering a sense of hope. To be in with a chance to share my song on such a legendary platform as Eurovision is amazing. It would be nothing less than a dream come true to bring Eurovision back home for Ireland once again.”
Second place in our poll went to Adgy. The part-Irish track “Too Good for Your Love” received 537 votes or approximately 25.01% of all votes cast.
Claiming the bronze medal is Leila Jane with “Wild”. In our poll, Leila picked up 310 votes — that’s 14.44% of the total vote.
