Linda Martin, who won the Eurovision Song Contest for Ireland in 1992, will be starring in Snow White, at Liberty Hall Theatre, in Dublin this coming Christmas.

Linda Martin, pictured as the evil step mother in the 2005 Cinderella production, will be playing Snow White's step mom this time in the popular Liberty panto(mime) show that sells out every year. "I am very much looking forward to being able to stand on stage shouting: 'Look behind you!' again this Christmas," said Linda. "I loved performing in the panto in 2005, it was the experience of a lifetime playing to packed out houses twice a day." She will be joined on stage by Alan Hughes, as Sammy Sausages, and Joe Conlan as Buffy.Tickets for the show will be available as of tomorrow.

Ireland's fourth Eurovision winner has been a regular in the country's national try-outs for the contest with nine attempts, two of them successful. She came second in 1984 with Johnny Logan's Terminal 3, to win 8 years later, in 1992, with Why me.

Linda has been lately serving as a judge in RTE's popular talent show You're a star, and rumours say that she won't be asked to participate again this year in the charity summer edition of the show, nor in 2008. RTE, though, does not confirm nor deny the rumours saying that actually no decision has been made as to the judges of the shows.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
