Can-linn to represent Ireland at Eurovision; Walsh and Martin row on show

Can-linn, featuring Dubliner Kasey Smith, will represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen in May.

23-year-old Kasey battled it out against four other finalists on the Late Late Show Eurosong 2014 last night, topping the vote which was a combination of 50% public tele-vote and 50% regional jury vote.

Her winning song, Heartbeat, was written by a team of Irish and Swedish songwriters.

There was also a bit of drama surrounding Louis Walsh and Linda Martin's involvement in the competition last night.
