If you should mention the name of ONE Eurovisision country, say Ireland! They have won the Song Contest not less than 7 times. Yes, you heard right, totally SEVEN times! It’s insane isnt it? Ireland won ESC in 1970, 1980, 1987, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1996. So we can wonder: What happened after 1996? Anyway, Ireland holds the record for the greatest number of victories! They even won two years in a row! They have also achieved second place four times and third once. So there is no doubt, Irish musicians are talented and they have an unique style of their music, something European viewers appreciate a lot!
Most successful ESC winners from Ireland:
Paul Harrington & Charlie McGettigan
The Swarbriggs Plus Two
