8 March – I played with white lies and fiction

OnEurope likes today’s birthday girl. Our beloved founder went on a boat trip with her, and they chewed the fat for hours apparently. It was a defining moment for Mr Phil.

Today’s birthday girl Molly Sterling was, at the time, Ireland’s youngest ever participant and was very hard done to in Vienna. Her song had a very profound lyric which was very clever. The trouble was that she was second on in her semi-final – never a promising start. She got a high score from the UK of stuff, which was most important. But whatever happened, she’ll always be a star.

Molly is 25 today.

Happy birthday/Lá breithe sásta, Molly!
