Do you think Jedward will make us a laughing stock at the Eurovision?
Noel Keyes Ashford ‘Certainly not – they’re great and I hope they win. If you look at the winners in recent years it’s always something different – the days of the ballads are over.’ Mary O’Connor Wicklow Town ‘I think they’ll do a better job than Dustin. They have a good following of people of all ages. I do like them myself.’ Angela Molloy Molloy’s Bakery ‘I think they are excellent and I would always support young people doing so well.’ Jim Molloy Molloy’s Bakery ‘Definitely not, I think they will do very well. They definitely have the right image for the Eurovision!’ Ann O’Connor Wicklow Town ‘Not at all. They’ll be better than Dustin and that’s for sure. Fair play to them – if they were my sons I’d be very proud.’ John Smith Killarney Road ‘We tend to run down our own when they achieve something. They’re well known in the UK and Europe and have a good chance of winning.’ Gavin Timmons Boghall Road ‘I don’t think they will make us the laughing stock of Europe. I really like them.’ Shane Rowan Quinsboro Road ‘It will prove yet again that the people in Europe think that the Irish are fools living in thatched cottages in Western Europe. They’ll be worse than the turkey.’
