Brendan Murray will represent Ireland at the Eurovision song contest in Kyiv, Ukraine, later this year.

The former Hometown star will perform a ballad called ‘Dying to Try’ at the singing contest.

The song, which was co-written by Swedish song writer Jörgen Elofsson and British song writer James Newman, was chosen from over 320 entries by a judging panel of six industry professionals.
