For the first time in 5 years, Ireland will be a part of the Eurovision Grand Final.

Ryan O'Shaughnessy qualified for the final of the song contest in dramatic fashion, after he was called out as the last of the 10 qualifiers from last night's semi final in Lisbon.

The Dubliner belted out his song Together to a big response from the crowd last night.

Here's the moment that Ireland was announced as the final qualifier from last night's semi final.

Just make sure you listen to Marty Whelan, he's like a proud dad!

 The final takes place on Saturday.
