The only country to finish below the U.K. in the Eurovision Song Contest was Ireland whose entry was from the well-known traditional Irish band Dervish.

They finished bottom with just 5 points. Only one country gave them points. They didn't win a single point from the U.K.

What does that tell us about support for traditional Irish music in the U.K. and across Europe?
