Balbriggan Native Leslie Roy to represent Ireland in Eurovision 2020

March 6, 2020 0

Singer-songwriter Lesley Roy has been chosen to represent Ireland in the 2020 Eurovision in the Netherlands in May. The 33-year-old Balbriggan, Co Dublin, native will sing Story of My Life, which she wrote.  A lifelong fan of Eurovision, Lesley said that getting to represent Ireland in 2020 with a song she worked extremely hard on has meant that one of her lifetime ambitions has been fulfilled.  Leslie splits her time between her home in the East Village in New York City and Ireland. 

This year’s final marks 50 years since Ireland first won the Eurovision when Dana sang All Kinds of Everything, a contest that also took place coincidentally in the Netherlands. Check out Leslie’s song below…
