An 8-year-old Bray girl is set to take to the stage tonight during the interval act for the second Eurovision semi-final.

“I think it’s going to be really fun. I’m the only Irish dancer taking part” said Megan. “My family and friends can’t wait to see me on the stage.”

Dancers aged from 8 to 69 years will be taking part in the interval act and Megan will be the first person on stage.

Can-Linn featuring Kasey Smith will be performing for Ireland in the Eurovision competition tonight with Heartbeat.
