Former X Factor Star To Represent Ireland In Eurovision

This year's Eurovision takes place in Tel Aviv in May and it looks like Ireland has decided who will be representing us at the contest.

Although the official announcement on who will be flying the flag for Ireland won't be made until Friday March 8th, many sources are suggesting that former X Factor star Janet Devlin has been chosen.

The Tyrone native was a contestant on the reality show in 2011 when she was only 16.

Rumours had suggested that Una Healy, formerly of girl group The Saturdays was to take on the task but it seems another plan is now in place.

The Eurovision will take place in the Expo Tel Aviv with two semi-finals
