Posted 28 Febuary, 2015, 13:56

Powered by: http://www.eurovision.tv Images: RTÉ The most successful nation in Europe's Favourite TV Show, namely Ireland, has chosen Molly Sterling with the song Playing With Numbers to wave the flag for them this year in Vienna. On The Late, Late Show special tonight, host Ryan Tubridy presented the five songs that were in contention for EuroSong 2015, and a combination of five regional juries and televoting determined which song would represent Ireland in the Second Semi-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest on Thursday the 21st of May. Molly Sterling (16) is a self-taught musician from Nenegh in Co Tipperary. She and songwriter Greg French co-wrote Playing wWth Numbers as part of her upcoming album. The song is about the risks people take every day in love and in life, and the experiences of taking the road less travelled. Molly says: 'As a performing artist it's rare to get the opportunity to represent your country. To be selected to do so would be an honour and a great responsibility that I would proudly embrace.'
