Jimmy Rainsford and Ryan Hennessy from the Irish pop rock band Picture This have told they would love to write the next song for Ireland on Eurovision. The two band members are also huge fans of the show. For instance, Jimmy Rainsford has been a member of the Irish jury.
“Yes, absolutely (we would consider writing a song). We actually love Eurovision.” Ryan Hennessy.
Talking about Måneskin, the 2021 Eurovision winner the band members have also positive comments. According to Jimmy Rainsford, he was “blown away” by Måneskin’s performance in Italian. The duo also considered the possibility of sending a song in Irish. Ireland has only submitted one song in Irish for Eurovision: Ceol an Ghrá by Sandie Jones in 1972. However, the band members are not sure if a song in Irish would get a good result since there are not many people who speak the language.
Nevertheless, Jimmy Rainsford loved that the top 3 this year sung in their national languages. Further he said, Gjon’s Tears song was incredible and his performance was amazing.
