On Mooney today...

On Thursday, May 9th, at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, the RTÉ Concert Orchestra staged a very special tribute to the 57-year musical legacy of The Eurovision Song Contest.

The show was called Mooney's Eurovision Melodies. It was presented by Derek Mooney, and featured an array of talent, including some of Ireland's best-known Eurovision winners, Niamh Kavanagh, Paul Harrington, as well as Ireland's number one Abba tribute band, Abba-esque.

So if you weren't able to make it to the NCH last week, never fear - on today's show, we bring you the highlights of Mooney's Eurovision Melodies!

Today, Derek travelled from Malmö to Copenhagen, where he visited the statue of acclaimed Danish writer Hans Christian Anderson, on Hans Christian Anderson Boulevard!
