Dafna Lamish from the Tel-Aviv University was in Copenhagen during the rehearsal week. She is conducting a research about Eurovision and the European identity. “The whole week the rumor was in the Eurovision circles that Estonia will be the winner in order to encourage the country to join the European Union.

The rights of sexual minorities are an unalienable part of human rights, the respect for which is a prerequisite for entry into the EU, she said, adding that Slovenia has had its reputation in European Parliament marred last year after the referendum to allow single women access to in-vitro fertilisation failed. “In the European Parliament, we understood the failed referendum as a conspiracy of the church and an attempt to discriminate lesbians, which did not create a positive image of Slovenia.

Albert Reynolds, later Taoiseach, used to run many of Dublin’s dance halls in those days and Walsh learnt his trade cleaning, making tea and selling tickets. Walsh’s aim, then as now, however, was cracking the British top 10 and the easiest route to that goal in Ireland, at that time, was the Eurovision Song Contest. After a few years of nurturing, Johnny Logan won the title in 1980 with his soupy ballad, ‘What’s Another Year’, and gave his manager his first taste of success. ‘The record was number one in 10 countries,’ Walsh recalls, over lunch at Dublin’s flash Four Seasons hotel. ‘But even though he won it again in 1987 he did not want to be the pop star that I wanted him to be. I still see Johnny at the airport, coming back from little gigs in Germany with his guitar.
