Start Lesley talking about Eurovision and she won’t stop:
“Growing up in Ireland, obviously the Contest holds a special place in my heart, as it does for many people. It was a very big event in my house every year, we watched and voted on each act and I became a massive fan at a very young age. I’m very lucky that I am from the era of Niamh Kavanagh, Paul Harrington, Eimear Quinn and Riverdance."
A lifelong fan of Eurovision, Lesley says that getting to represent Ireland with a song she has worked extremely hard on has meant that one of her lifetime ambitions has been fulfilled.
