    This song deserved a much higher placing after her performance in the final i really thought she'd won it, but then again i thought the same about Sweden and Iceland last year

    She had a beautiful song at the contest. Simply not a winner in this version of Eurovision :/ Normally I'm not a fan of Ireland's songs but this time was different :)

    Wonder now if she regrets returning to the contest to walk away as a "loser" [2] she certainly does. good song but..

    Good ballad which deserved better treatment when it came to points. Wonder now if she regrets returning to the contest to walk away as a "loser", after having won the contest long ago.
