The Strabane singer aiming for Eurovision glory is confident of making this weekend’s showpiece final.

Ryan Dolan (27), takes to the Malmö stage for the first time on Tuesday night, when he competes in the contest’s semi final.

He says he is confident of making Saturday’s showpiece final.

“It’s going to come down to the night but I’m going to be doing my very best to get through to the final, that’s the goal at the moment.

“Hopefully I’m going to go through, I’ll be really disappointed if I don’t. But I think we have a great chance and the song is doing well,” he says.

His song ‘Only Love Survives’ was co-written by fellow Strabane native Wez Devine.
