Earlier this afternoon, EBU made an announcement stating that Ireland's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, We've got the world, written by Keith Molloy and Martin Branningan, performed by Mickey Harte, had been cleared of all plagiarism accusations.
In today's investigation of whether Ireland's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, was guilty of plagiarism, the EBU reference group came to the conclusion, that it was not.
Allegedly We've Got The World was supposed to be a copy of Fly on the Wings of Love. In an interview with Jorgen Olsen, the writer and performer of the winning song in 2000, he told us that he had never believed that the song was guilty of plagarism.
RTÉ's Commissioning Editor for Music, Kevin Linehan annouced earlier this afternoon that he was ecstatic with the outcome of this issue, particularly for the Irish composers.
One thing is known for sure, Mickey Harte will represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, with his touching ballade We've got the world.
