For the last 4 years Ireland has been more successful than it had been the few years previous. Starting with Niamh Kavanagh in 2010 where she qualified from the semi-final and finished 23rd in the final. Jedward in 2011 where they qualified from the semi-final and finished 8th, Jedward represented Ireland again in 2012 and again qualified from the semi-final and finished 19th in the final and finally Ryan Dolan in 2013 who qualified from the semi-final and finished 26th in the final.
