In the Irish final the highly favourised Ryan Dolan could gain the ticket for Malmö. The five juries from different parts of Ireland have put Ryan on second place. The televoting has been the decisive weight and Ryan could overtake Aimée Fitzpatrick with “Crashing Down”. The winning song is called “Only Love Survives”; it’s a contemporary song, and Ryan’s high voice is very suitable for it. The Irish choice has been also taken the international chances into account.
