Irish Reception in Kyiv

Irish Reception in Kyiv

The now traditional Irish Party at Eurovision took place last night at O’Brien’s Pub in Kyiv. Bang in the heart of the City, close to the Maidan Nezalezhnosti this jolly little bit of Ireland in Ukraine was the perfect venue for the press an delegations to gather and mix while catching up with performances from the Irish singer, Brendan Murray

In typical Irish hospitality the invited delegations and press were treated to complimentary food and drink and had an opportunity to meet with Brendan and his team behind Dying To Try. We spotted the teams from Malta, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and probably missed many many more.

Then it was time for some traditional Irish music from a local band, we didn’t their name - sorry for that - but they got the crowd going and most of the delegations there danced - or attempted to dance - Irish style….you can watch the clip here;

A special treat were two performances from the Irish Backing Singers, Allison Vard Miller and Margot Daly;

Finally it was time for Brendan to take to the stage and perform for every one and the clips can be found here;

The one highlight was that he made the Serbian singer cry with his performance of Dying To Try and then she decided to sing the Adele song “Someone Like You”; clip here

You can also check all out photos from the event here;

Go Team Brendan!!!!

Ireland second rehearsal

I've said it a few times before, but Ireland is another of those countries where the visuals look a lot better in the hall than on screen. It is very dark and my first association when I see it like this is an artic sea with icebergs in it, all be it that they are black in this case as well.

The balloon is still there and still adds nothing to the performance, other than it being a prop that people may remember it for. I hope in a good way though..
