Niamh Kavanagh who won the Eurovision in Millstreet back in 1993, last night won the Irish Eurosong last night with maximum votes from all the judges groups and the general public (tele-voting). She will be representing Ireland in the Eurovision 2010 in the Telenor Arena in Olso, Norway in the semi-final on May 27th and hopefully in the final on May 29th.
The Telenor Arena is actually a soccer stadium with a roof that can hold 23,000 people for a concert!
Expect to be hearing Millstreet ’93 being mentioned a lot in the run-up to the competition in Oslo. Well done Niamh and best of luck in Oslo!
Here is an article on the Herald interviewing Niamh after she won last night.
