Ireland: What should we do next? - Part 2
It's our season finale! In the second part of our special two-part season finale, we're looking towards the future and sharing our thoughts on this question: What should Ireland do next? With Ireland's record of seven wins now equalled by Sweden and another 'failed to qualify' sticker added to our record, the movement for change is well under way. With the national media now joining the conversation and asking the question about Ireland's position within the Eurovision Song Contest, it seems the nation really want to see Ireland's fortunes change. We want to share our opinions on what Ireland should/needs to do going forward. Without being critical, we're aiming to have a healthy discussion and look ahead. We'll be discussing everything from national final versus internal selection, budget, innovation, and social media/online engagement. In our first part, Conor and Lou shared their opinions about what Ireland should do.
In this part of the episode, Conor and Lou are joined by four very special guests from the Eurovision community. Sharing their opinions, Alex Basmati - a huge Eurovision fan (and iconic costume wearer), Tommy Corbett - News Editor for Eurovoxx, Miceal O'Kane (Founder and reactor with Eurovision Hub), and for the very first time, Irish Eurovision YouTuber - ESC Tom!
