Mayo girl singing on TG4's Junior Eurovision

AFTER coming fourth in last year’s Junior Eurovision, the search is on for the next Irish Junior Eurovision 2023 entry and it could be a girl from Mayo.

In the third episode of the series on TG4, on Sunday, September 17, at 8.30 p.m., 14-year-old Grace Ruane from Ballina will be competing.

Each year, the best young singers, aged nine to 14, from across Europe compete in this huge event. But who will represent Ireland?

The winner will head to France on November 26 with a song composed especially for their voice to take on Europe.

It will be up to the judges to pick the winner - Niamh Ní Chróinín and Aindriú de Paor, who will be joined by special guest judge Ryan O'Shaughnessy.

The show is hosted by Louise Cantillon and Darragh Ó Caoimh.
