Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest

Ireland was the host country of the Eurovision Song Contest 1993, held in Millstreet's Green Glens Arena, after Linda Martin won the 1992 Contest with "Why Me?". Radió Telfís Éireann (RTÉ) held a national final to select the Irish entry for the contest, which was won by Niamh Kavanagh and the song "In Your Eyes".

National final

The Irish national final was held on 14 March at the Point Theatre in Dublin, hosted by Pat Kenny. 8 songs competed to represent the host country at the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest, with the final winner selected by the votes of ten regional juries.
