Sarah McTernan will represent Ireland at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. She was born on 11 March 1994 and is an Irish singer-songwriter from Scariff, County Clare. She came third in the series 4 of 'The Voice of Ireland' in April 2015. At her blind audition she sang 'Who You Are' and all 4 judges turned their chairs. Her coach and mentor was Rachel Stevens of S Club 7 fame.

Sarah is an only child and has a 2.5-year-old daughter Mia who also loves to sing. After graduating from secondary school in 2011, Sarah took a pre-nursing course in Ennis, County Clare. She then went on to study Music Technology at Limerick Institute of Technology after which she took a break from education and worked in retail. Sarah has also worked as a makeup artist.

In November 2014, after getting through the blind auditions on The Voice of Ireland, without ever doing any gigs, Sarah set up her own band called The Jeds. The band performs at weddings and gig around Clare and Munster. Sarah plays traditional violin, guitar, ukulele, piano and tin whistle.

Last year, Sarah competed to represent San Marino at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon with a song called Eye of the Storm written by Swedish songwriters and identical twin sisters Ylva and Linda Perssons.

Lyrics of 22

I see 22, oh when I think of you Lately, that's all I do Don’t you know that I I’m always driving by Want to come home to you Now I know, I've always been afraid to say How I feel But this's got to change Every time I’m with somebody I’m confusing him with you Anywhere I go reminds me of the things we used to do And I dream about our street where we kissed out of the blue at your house number 22 I see 22 it's like deja-vu Boy, if you only knew This time, I messed it up But I can't give you up Your face is all I've got Oh I know, I've always been afraid to say how I feel But this's got to change Every time I’m with somebody I'm confusing him with you Anywhere I go reminds me of the things we used to do And I dream about our street where we kissed out of the blue at your house number 22 All alone tonight Wishing you were laying by my side So I just keep on driving by To pass the time Every time I’m with somebody I’m confusing him with you Anywhere I go reminds me of the things we used to do And I dream about our street where we kissed out of the blue at your house number 22 Oooh Oooh Oooh Oooh
