Aslan have been pipped at the post in a bid to score their first ever No 1 single following a campaign to get This Is to the top of the chart.

Following last week's Night for Christy tribute concert in Dublin's Olympia Theatre, the Finglas band got behind an online effort to get the song, originally a No 12 hit in 1986, to the top but it has debuted on the chart at No 2.

Robin Thicke continues his seven-week rule as Ireland's No 1 single with Blurred Lines. However, Aslan have crashed into the top 10 album chart with their Platinum Collection.

U2 performed a cover of This Is as part of the tribute concert which also saw Irish acts such as Paul Brady, Mark Fehilly of Westlife and Jedward singing their interpretations of Aslan songs.

Dublin band Kodaline remain at No 1 for a second week with their debut album In a Perfect World.
