13-year-old Anna Kearney has been chosen to represent Ireland at the Junior Eurovision final in Poland.

Anna, who is from Foxrock in County Dublin, impressed the judges, including guest judge Linda Martin, with her rendition of Eurovision classic, Why Me and her contemporary choice, Symphony by Clean Bandit. 

She beat off stiff competition from fellow finalists Savannah Phoenix-Munro and Orla Mc Dermott. 

A seasoned performer, Anna has performed on Broadway with the group The Rockettes. In 2017 she played the lead role of Annie at The National Concert Hall in Dublin. She has won numerous Feis competitions and has even danced for the Pope. 

This is not her family's first time to be involved with the Eurovision. Her mum Eileen was part of the iconic Irish dancing troupe that brought Riverdance to the world during the Eurovision Contest in 1994.

For the final Anna will perform a song called Banshee which she wrote with Niall Mooney, Fiachna Ó Braonáin and Anna Banks and composed by Cyprian Cassar, Jonas Gladnikoff and Daniel Caruana.

The Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be held in the Gliwice Arena, Poland, on November 24.
