Ireland's love affair with the Eurovision began with the National Song Contest in 1965, when Brendan Bowyer and Dickie Rock participated. Over the past fifty years, no country has won the competition more often. Why has Ireland been so successful? What does it take to win? Why has the country been less successful in recent years? How can Ireland win again?

Renowned music writer Michael Lynch asks people who have been there, who have seen it firsthand. From the backing singers, stagehands, directors, producers, songwriters and singers, right up to the winning artists, all share their memories here to tell us what we don't see on camera.

Featuring exclusive new interviews, and sixteen pages of color photographs, this book tells the story of Ireland's romance with Eurovision.
