Good Evening Europe, I'm Thomas from Port Laoise in Ireland. I've been a massive fan of Eurovision since the mid 90s and I have lots of amazing childhood memories of the four Irish victories in that decade.
My love for Eurovision grew throughout the naughties as the music became more 'pop' and the stage performances got more elaborate. A lifelong dream finally came through when I attended the Eurovision in Lisbon 2018 and my passion became an obsession. I knew I would be attending every year from then on.
I love Eurovision because it's a beacon of unity, friendship, positivity, inclusivity and celebration across Europe (and further afield).
In my spare time, I'm an amateur dancer and often try to perfect some ESC dance routines (Fuego, She Got Me, Abanibi, On Fire) with varying degrees of success.
Patiently waiting for Eurovision to come home to Ireland...one day soon!
Favourite Eurovision Entry: Ruslana — Wild Dances (Ukraine, 2004)*.
