Former Kilkenny College student to represent Ireland in Eurovision 2015

A past pupil of a Kilkenny school has been chosen to represent Ireland in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

16-year-old Molly Sterling is a Tipperary native but she attended Kilkenny College in the City.

This year’s Eurovision marks the competition’s 60th anniversary and will be held in Vienna, Austria in May.

Molly co-wrote the song she performed last night, Playing with Numbers, with singer-songwriter Greg French.

Speaking to KCLR News, her former music teacher at the school, David Mellon, said Molly’s success last night came as no surprise to him!
