Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Thanks to Johnny Logan's win in Brussels the year before, the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest was held in Ireland's capital city, Dublin. The song "Take Him Home," written and composed by Peter Eades and performed by Jump The Gun was chosen to represent Ireland after it won the national final selection. Held on 6 March at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, the national final was hosted by Marty Whelan (who would provide commentary for RT 's broadcast of the Eurovision beginning in 2000, although Whelan did provided the commentary The previous year and would provided the 1988 Irish Radio commentary), and Maxi, who had represented Ireland as a soloist in the 1973 Eurovision Song Contest, and again as part of the group Sheeba in 1981.show more
