Galway native Aimee Banks from Moycullen is this weekend set to represent Ireland in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015.
After auditions nationwide, 32 finalists were chosen to battle it out in the televised heats. Judges Niamh Kavanagh, Brian Kennedy and Stiofán Ó Fearail had the final say on who would represent Ireland, eventually choosing Aimee.
The singer is now this week heading to the Bulgarian capital Sofia, where she will be singing Réalta na Mara (Star of the Sea), a song which she co-wrote and composed with Niall Mooney, Jonas Gladnikoff and Brendan McCarthy.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast live from the Armeec Arena in Sofia on TG4 on Saturday 21 November at 6.30pm.
