According to Keith over at allkindsofeverything it looks like RTE have decided to select an artist internally rather than the multi artist selection that was used in 2008!
The rumour is that there will not be an open call for songs as was the case in 2006 and 2007.
'The choice of performer is likely to generate a huge amount of interest in the Irish entry in Moscow, as the name that is currently being rumoured as the choice of RTÉ is a well established singer and songwriter with high recognition around Europe and is certainly not unknown to Eurovision fans'
Very interesting...Is it Johnny Logan??! Could it be the 1997 interval act Boyzone?
Is Phil Coulter involved...Is it Linda?
What do you think of all of this?
