It was a very disappointing result last night for Can-Linn and Kasey Smith as they failed to secure a place for Ireland in Saturday’s final of the Eurovision Song Contest.
Fifteen countries competed with just ten securing places in the final but Can-Linn’s Heartbeat failed to make the grade.
The countries progressing are Malta, Norway, Poland, Austria, Finland, Belarus, Switzerland, Greece, Slovenia and Romania.
The group tweeted last night expressing their disappointment at the result and wishes good luck to the finalists while Kasey tweeted “Thank u so much to everyone who voted !!!devastated but off out to party!!! #irishpride”.
You can watch the final on Saturday night on RTÉ One from 8pm with commentary from Marty Whelan.
