Although unconfirmed for next year at the time of writing, Lesley spoke to us back in June, saying that if she was asked, she’d love to represent Ireland again at next year’s Eurovision.
Speaking to our editor Matt about next year’s Eurovision, Lesley said:
I’m very hopeful. I’ve had all the conversations with RTE. I will come back as long as the song is big enough. If I can write a song to a standard that we all agree on then I’ll be there!
