Last night, the Eurovision Song Contest second semi final was held. Ten countries from nineteen made it through to the Grand Final on Saturday night. Ireland however was not amongst the ten.

Speaking afterwards, Sinéad Mulvey said that the members of the band were very disappointed that they did not qualify but were still happy with their performance on their night.

In an interviewon RTÉ Radio 1 show'Morning Ireland',lead artist Sinéad Mulvey said: "We couldn't have done any more. We gave our heart and soul into that performance."

When asked about the future,Sinéad replied: "Do you know what? I think there's going to be a lot more of me and Black Daisy. There are so many people already giving offers and asking for different things."

She later added: "As far as Ireland is concerned, I think that we stand a really good chance in the music business when we come back, so we're delighted about that."

Sinéadfurthermore said that she and Black Daisy would have no interest in representing Ireland at the Eurovision again.

"No, we wouldn't go back to the Eurovision," she said. "We've done our thing now. We've shown what we can do for Ireland and we know the majority of Ireland are proud of us, so that's all we can do."

Twenty songs chosen from the semi-finals will now take part in Saturday night's final, along with automatic qualifiers Russia, Spain, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Ireland currently holds the record for winning the Eurovision song Contest, a stagering seven times.
