Orla keeps her Eurovision dream alive

Front Page

Twelve year old Orla Mc Dermott’s Eurovision dream is still alive as she  has qualified for the final three in her battle to represent Ireland at junior Eurovision in November in Poland.

On Sunday night Orla gave a fabulous rendition of James Bay’s “Hold Back The River” as Gaeilge.

Savannah Phoenix Monroe and Anna Kearney were both chosen to go straight through to the final with Orla chosen to go through to the sing off against Alison Mc Grath.

After a few nail-biting moments, however, the judges were back with their votes.

The first vote for Orla came from Niamh Kavanagh who had earlier claimed she was bursting with pride as if Orla were her own.

Chris Greene’s vote went to Alison, so it was down to Grainne Bleasdale who, after some deliberation, gave the Drogheda girl Orla her vote.This means that Orla’s dream is still within her grasp.

Tune in on Sunday 6th October TG 4 8.30pm...  Go n-eirí le Orla.
