Ireland has selected it’s entry for Eurovision 2024 to be held in Malmo Sweden in May.

Bambie Thug, originally from Macroom in Cork, emerged as the winner in the Eurosong event on the Late Late show on Friday night.

Their song is Doomsday Blue and the artist says their music is best described as “Ouija-pop” inspired by various subjects including breakups, witchcraft and drug addiction.

The Irish Times writer Ed Power gives a positive review, stating, “Their sugar-and-spice mix of pop and industrial metal will undoubtedly land with a splash in Malmö.  

Bambie Thug is the stage name of Bambie Ray Robinson, aged 30 and now living in London.

Ireland last made the Eurovision grand final in 2018.   Ireland’s last Eurovision win was 28 years ago when Emer Quinn’s The Voice took first place in 1996.
