Pop Poll on Ireland's Eurovision Song Contest Entry: Dustin the Turkey with "Ireland Douze Pointe"

What Do You Think of Ireland's Eurovision Entry?

You're not too hopeful about the UK's chances in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, but what do you think about Ireland's entry? ICYMI, Ireland will be represented by Dustin the Turkey, a glove-puppet from a children's TV show. Really.

If you haven't yet heard "Irelande Douze Pointe" click below and enjoy ...

Dustin has the support of Bob Geldof who, showing his ability to have a laugh, said Dustin was one "of the greatest talents this country has ever produced ... The mere fact that he is a turkey should give Ireland the edge".

Other people haven't been quite so supportive, however. Ireland's first Eurovision representative Dana Rosemary Scallon, who won the competition in 1970, said:

"I think it is insulting to the music industry here and I think it is an insult to the other countries who are taking part ... if we think it is not important and it doesn't matter, let's pull out like other countries have done".

We want to know what you think: just a bit of fun, or an insult?
