So....Voting is OPEN!! 🇮🇪 the time has come for us to go out to all our friends around the world and see if we can ask our Irish friends and friends of Ireland to use the power of Social media and try to bring the Junior Eurovision to Ireland in 2020. Please pass this message on... Two key things... 1. Irish people can vote for Ireland!!! 🇮🇪 2. You need to vote for at least three countries to lodge a valid vote. Please share this message. Ireland is being represented by Anna Kearney and 50% of the overall result rests in the online voting. Please take 45 seconds to vote and if we could ask each of you to share this link/message with all of your friends on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp groups, 🎾 clubs, 📚 clubs, 🚵🏼‍♀️ teams, Gaelic, hurling, 🏉, ⚽️ , 🏓, 🏊‍♀️ clubs, Australian football groups, your MMA friends, work colleagues, favourite taxi drivers, local businesses it we would really appreciate it on behalf of Anna. We are a small country, but we believe we can punch above our weight. Anna will do her best for Ireland on Sunday and we are hoping, as George Bernard Shaw said when he summed up his approach to life, he said that some people “see things and say ‘Why?’...but I dream things that never were and I say: ‘Why not?” Let’s show Europe that we might be small, but we can spread our wings wide! Bródúil as Éirinn. You can clear your search history and keep voting for me!

Anna is well used to the stage having played Annie at the National Concert Hall and performing on Broadway amongst other amazing achievements.

Set to perform Banshee, it’s a song about overcoming adversity and fear with the help of those who love us.

And the music video features a cameo from another very familiar Eurovision face.

According to the Junior Eurovision website, Anna is not the first in her family to aspire towards Eurovision fame as her mam Eileen performed onstage with Riverdance back in 1994.

Quite a talented family.

Taking place over in Poland, the show will be aired on TG4 tomorrow at 7pm.

Don't forget to vote.
