There Are Hilariously Mixed Feelings Over Ireland’s 2017 Eurovision Entry

Alana Laverty

RTÉ yesterday announced and unveiled Ireland’s entry for Eurovision 2017 in Kyiv. 

Brendan Murray, formerly of HomeTown, will represent Ireland with Dying To Try, a song co-written by Swedish songwriter Jörgen Elofsson and British songwriter James Newman.

Haven’t seen it yet? Take a gander below. 

Personally, we think it’s the best song Ireland’s entered in a while now. 

And the music video is nothing short of dreamy with all that drone footage. 

But people are expressing some pretty conflicting feelings about the song…


Very mixed feelings indeed.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
