Tonight I am hosting our fabulous preview party (Thanks to Peter for the dvd!)
I will post the results when we have them..Something tells me you could guess who will get the 12 points!
NRK are coming to Dublin on Monday (volcanic dust permitting!) to film the introduction segment for Ireland's entry. The proposed setting is the GPO. We will be there waving the tri colour!
Niamh is on the promo trail in Sweden on Monday performing at Golden Hits in Stockholm.
OGAE Ireland will be having their annual preview party on Saturday 24th in Enniscorthy. Having predicted the winner in 2009 and 2008 will we get it correct again?!

Just back from a mini break in Malta. I didn't share a bucket of chicken wings with the fabulous Chiara but I had a great time nonetheless!
Oslo feels so much closer now and speculation and guessing about qualification goes into overdrive at this point.
Our semi final has 7 countries with a 100% qualification record which makes things more testing for Ireland but I have full confidence that we will be amongst the ten envelopes.
Countries like Greece and Azerbaijan are certain qualifiers but things can always change and it will remain to be seen how the 50/50 voiting will impact the results.
Germany now seems to be top with the bookies having overtaken Azerbaijan in recent days. A nice song that I really like but I don't see it as a winner at the moment. Ireland has gone from 50/1 at Boylesports to 25/1 at the moment, definately worth a bet!
The Euroclub has moved location aswell despite my booking of the original hotel for convenience!
I hope you all checked out Shelia Fitzpatrick's tribute to Niamh. If you didn't you will find it here!
A UK rag also published a story yesterday stating that Josh would no longer be singing the UK entry but that Sonia would be entering and renewing her battle with Niamh from 1993! At least Eurovision April fools jokes are getting published!
Read it here.
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter. Hugs x
