Forget Dustin The Turkey, you deserve something way tastier.

WHAT’S THE IRISH EUROVISION entry that you’ll never be able to forget? Maybe it was Johnny Logan’s classic Hold Me Now from 1987? Or Jedward’s high-energy entry Lipstick from 2011?

Or maybe all you can remember is the travesty of Dustin’s ‘Douze Pointe’ in 2008? It’s been ten years this year since that one. Shh, we’ve moved on.

One thing is for certain – as a nation, we’ve been obsessed with the Eurovision ever since we dominated the proceedings in nineties. Sure, didn’t we win four times in five years between 1992 and 1996.

Needless to say, Eurovision parties are such good craic that they’re practically a national tradition at this stage – and we want to arm you with everything you need to celebrate this year’s Eurovision in style.

And this year it’s never been more affordable to make a toast to 2018′s hopefuls – Centra even have an extensive French wine sale, meaning you can take your pick of fantastic reds and whites ahead of the big night.

This year, there were rumours that our entry ‘Together’ might be banned in Russia for featuring a same sex-couple wandering (and dancing) through Temple Bar. Fortunately, DailyEdge confirmed that it was exactly that - just a rumour.

So, what better then than to have everything you need to host the ultimate Eurovision party when we go to cheer on Ryan O’Shaughnessy as he flies the flag for us on Saturday the 12th of May?
