It seems to be a good draw for Ireland as no major groups are in the same semi. As in the draw of the which final the big 4 and Norway will vote in the UK were drawn to vote in the second Semi. This is good news!

The result of that draw was:

  • Norway (Second Semi-Final)
  • Germany (First Semi-Final)
  • United Kingdom (Second Semi-Final)

  • France (Second Semi-Final)

Its shaping up to be a good year!
