Ireland: Submission deadline

    Ireland at Eurovision
    October 20, 2021 all-day Europe/London Timezone

    RTÉ is pleased to announce that Ireland will be taking part in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest in Italy in May 2022.

    If you are an accomplished songwriter with a proven track record of success in the music industry, we would like you to submit a song together with a suitable performer(s) to be considered to represent Ireland.

    All songs must be submitted with an artist(s) already attached, artists must have the talent, drive and ambition to compete at the highest level before a global audience of over 200 million people. Artists putting themselves forward (with a song) must have intrinsic and obvious appeal to the core youth audiences who make up a significant amount of Eurovision viewers and fans.

    Entries will be considered by a panel of music and entertainment industry professionals and Eurovision fans. Selected artists may be invited to audition in the RTÉ studios in Dublin.

    A shortlist of songs and artists will subsequently be invited to perform live on television early in 2022 on a “Eurovision Late Late Show Special” when a winner will be chosen to represent Ireland.
