Ireland – Together


Ryan O’Shaughnessy, you are a sweetheart and a darling and I love the video that you’ve produced for this song, featuring two young men dancing through the streets of Dublin.

But your song is best experienced as the flip side of Mikolas Josef’s ‘Lie to Me.’ In that song, Mikolas notes that his hookup is lying to him about other relationships but he just doesn’t care – in fact, he finds it sexy.

In your song, you’ve found out that your partner is spending time with other people, and you’ve gotten all mopey, accusing your partner with terms like ‘You said we’ll be together till we die. I’ll forever wonder why…”

Ryan, your song is the equivalent of the ice cream binges and Instagram stalking bit of a breakup, which is bad news – no one wants that. You need to be in the Benjamin Ingrosso ‘Karma’s a bitch’ part of a relationship.

I’m sorry that you didn’t get to process your grief in time to deliver a banger for Ireland, but it’s a sweet song anyway. Maybe you’ll find a confidence-bringing rebound at the Euroclub. Let me know if you need a wingman, Ryan! Happy to talk you up!

UPDATE:This song is doing quite well in the press room polls, to the surprise of many. But don’t get your hopes up, Ireland.

TWITTER JOKES YOU SHOULDN’T BOTHER MAKING BECAUSE THEY’VE ALREADY BEEN DONE BETTER BY THE EUROFANDOM: Yes, we know you’ve seen the Father Ted Eurovision episode. You know how? YOU MAKE THE SAME DAMN MY LOVELY HORSE JOKE EVERY EUROVISION. Give it a rest.

SHOULD YOU TAKE A PEE BREAK DURING HIS PERFORMANCE: Originally, I would have said yes, but Ryan makes it snow on stage!
