Who are Sinéad Mulvey and Black Daisy?
Ireland went with a all-girl pop-rock band Black Daisy and the young female singer Sinéad Mulvey. According to them they wanted to 'rock Russia' with their song Et Cetera and that they did!
"All of Ireland is supporting you girls. If you win, lose or draw you will have made us very proud! It is wonderful to see a girl rock band in the Eurovision Song Contest. They are just as good as Lordi from Finland, Deli from Turkey, Wig Wam from Norway and The Ark from Sweden, " a fan from Ireland said. Another fan from Russia added:"Good luck Ireland, very nice song, rather memoriable!"
They sure impressed and rocked the audiences all over Europe and got a total of 52 points, placing eleventh in the second Semi-Final.

After the Show
Last year Ireland decided to leave the tough job of representing one of the most successful Eurovision Song Contest countries to Dustin The Turkey. Unfortunately he did not qualify for the Final with his Irelande Douze Pointe. The last Irish participant which did, however, qualify for the Final was Brian Kennedy in 2006 with Every Song Is A Cry For Love. In the end he achieved the tenth place.
